Cease & Desist: Ecosystem

Dear Sirs & Madames,

Re: Use of the word to describe a market or company

It has come to our attention that you are continually using the word to describe a market or company, as if it were a collection of living and breathing organisms, flora, and fauna. For example, the "blog ."

You have 24 HOURS to remove the offending language from corporate literature, Web pages, internal email, instant messages, meetings, conversations, and urinal/restroom banter. Please confirm in writing that you have done so.

Failing this, we will apply for an injunction, and will also seek to recover costs and damages (plus interest) for your tortious and torturous acts and conduct.

This is our final communication to you on this matter. We look forward to hearing from you as a matter of urgency and sanity.

Sincerely,
The English language
