How have you determined that this is not simply a
bug or coding error,
It is true that I'm assuming bad faith here entirely on the basis of
the previous bad-faith behaviour.
Then - setting aside the propriety of your characterization of the
fundraising team's past efforts - the correct thing to do would be to
report the obnoxious returning banner as a bug (including enough
information to help figure out its source) and at least wait for some
indication that it may not have been one before casting aspersions on
real peoples' ethics. Treating others like mustache-twirling villains
rarely ends up being productive.
Assuming that it *is* a bug, getting it tracked down and fixed as
quickly as possible so that it affects fewer people is the important
thing; rage over the blunder may be cathartic but is not in fact useful.
