Open Letter to Efi Cakerel

Dear Mr. Efi Cakarel,

I am writing to express my interest in becoming a customer of Mubi, but unfortunately, the behavior of your Dutch representatives has prevented me from doing so. I have been met with laughter and ridicule when inquiring about alternative payment methods, as I do not have a credit card and do not wish to use PayPal, due to its potential use as a political instrument.

I find it peculiar that the Dutch representatives of your company have instructed me on how to create fake credit cards, instead of providing assistance with a legitimate payment option. All I want to do is pay for a service that I am interested in, and it is disheartening that this simple task has become such a burden.

I understand that credit cards and PayPal are the most common payment methods, but I believe that a company as innovative as Mubi should also offer alternative options for customers who have valid reasons for not wanting to use them. It would be greatly appreciated if your company could provide more information on the available payment methods, or if your Dutch representatives could be trained to handle such inquiries with more understanding and professionalism.

I would like to express my hope that Mubi will rectify this issue and provide me with the opportunity to become a valued customer.

While you are here, perhaps you will find inspiration in my latest coillection of poetry. I have been giving it away for free and would like to offer you a copy as well:

Poetry to Read in the Dark (2022) (1136 downloads)

In any case, thank you for your attention in this matter. I am sure you will set the record about this misunderstanding straight soon.

Sincerely, Martijn Benders – Poet and lover of alternative films.

No, no: I am not a 'guru' of some sorts: I'm just a guy that happened to be succesful at fighting of the addictions dystopia had blessed me with.

Now I am devoting my time to helping others as a mycotherapist.

I know a lot about mushrooms and I have devised methods of employing them in your diet that will help your physical and emotional wellbeing.

If you experience problems and you think I might be able to help you, please go to my contact page and let's have a chat.

I wrote a book titled 'Amanita Muscaria: The Book of the Empress'. That book presents 'the big picture', the one you've perhaps been missing out on. It is the story of what really happened with humanity the last 1000 years, and how wild mushrooms came to be demonized, and how Amanita Muscaria/ Fly Agaric can help you regain your true self and at the same time make this planet a better place for everyone.

The book can be bought at regular dutch bookstores and soon at international bookstores too. And to be complete: you can also buy it from me directly using crypto. Just donate an amount of crypto to me that would equal about 33 euros and I will send you a signed copy:

If you want to donate me some crypto to help my cause (fighting the benzodiazepine epedemic) your contribution would also be most welcome.

I am also known as a writer and a poet. As of 2023 I have written about 18 books. Lots of them are available for free from my homepage: I have never been much of a kapitalist, and I believe that good poetry has a healing effect on people.

Drop me a line if you want to ask me something or collaborate on anything. I wish you a great life, and lots of luck and great guidance on the path you are walking.
