    I think some of the people who chase you in the street definitely border on harassment... But I definitely wouldn't go as far to say adverts on TV or posters and radio clips are anywhere near harassment you can very easily ignore them if you choose to.

    I think the best way to raise money is advertisement on TV. But also using the internet is an excellent way, many can choose to ignore.

    It is.

    Infact many local councils have very strict rules for the chuggers with the most common being that they cannot bunch up and cannot move more than a few paces in any direction so as to stop them following people down the street.

    I expect they'll be banned entirely soon. It's disgusting the amount of profit these marketing companies are making on the pretence of raising funds for charities.

    It's horrible living in the city and constantly being bombarded by them.
