Does the left hand know what the right is doing?

Concept of sending e-mails from your computer

I received two Emails within 21 minutes of one another. Sound unusual? Probably not. However…

…the two emails were from the same charity.

One Email was announcing current events of the organisation. The second was a request for me to become a member.

Even more interesting is the fact I have not heard from this organisation since July 2015. Now I have heard from them twice in one day, twice in one hour, and twice..asking me to come to an event AND to join/renew as a member.

When I received the two Emails, I believed the Emails were duplicate until I read them a bit closer. Once I realised these were not duplicate Emails, I asked whether the left hand knows what the right hand is doing? Perhaps, worse, maybe the two Emails were generated by the same party or department? No one knows. At the end of the day, is this best practice?
