Kupat Hair's tactics are gezel gamur

This is not me talking (although I have certainly criticized their tactics, see for example, Another historic event from Kupat Hair Bnei Brak and Kupat Hair never stops ) but R' Matisyahu Solomon.

Kupat Ha’ir’s Over The Top Advertising

The Lakewood mashgiah Rav Mattisyahu Solomon, shlit”a, did term some of the solicitation techniques of Kupat Ha’ir as “gezel gamur”/ theft in the true sense of the term.

I wonder if this will make any difference.

Perhaps, but perhaps not because of the apologetics. The Cross-Currents piece is a good example. With so many choices of tzedakah organizations, why continue to give to an organization that engages in tactics that are "gezel gamur"?
