Am I the only one who really doesn't mind them at all? They're not that bad, surely?

The constant drone of people complaining about the vuvuzelas is far worse than the vuvuzelas themselves...

I agree to an extent .... seeing as it is part of South African and African sporting culture in general, I havn't got a problem with it at all, just like the Brazilians and their samba beat ..... but when 2 European sides are playing each other, with a tradition for audible singing then I think that they should be banned, in fact a 3 yr banning order should be imposed on any England fan found guilty!

It's part of Grimsby culture to sign songs about fish but you won't hear them at a Manchester derby.

Like i said, I can understand them at games, where S.Africa, Ghana, Nigeria etc are playing, but should we expect them in a game between USA and England, or Holland Denmark.

FIFA's contact form:
http://www.fifa.com/contact/form.html

The following is a list of partners, sponsors, and supporters from FIFA's list of partners found here:
http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/organisation/partners/index.html

The Facebook pages of a few of the big corporations are also at the bottom of this list.

These links either take you directly to a contact form or put you within a click or two of a contact form (except for Aggreko). Please be polite in your messages. Most of these companies we could do without for a month or two. Let's see if they feel the same way about us.

Sample message which you will need to modify for the numbers:

"This message is to inform you that I am actively discouraging anyone from using your services or products until the use of the vuvuzela is banned from the World Cup and all of FIFA games as long as you continue to support FIFA. Within four days a Facebook group supporting the ban of vuvuzela's has grown to 180,000 members and continues to grow at a fast rate. Please contact FIFA and let them know of the active campaigning against your products because of the use of the vuvuzela."
