Too Slow to Flag

Well, I actually saw the flag yourself video on another blog. I went to the site, and was going to flag myself, but didn't. So I know it was legitimate. I think that because of the uproar, they stopped accepting the emails. I have gone to the site where I first saw it and asked the author. I will let you know what he says, but I bet the campaign worked, and that the government was so inundated with emails from people flagging themselves that they stopped accepting them.


Thanks to Looney for doing the footwork. I guess they changed the address. He got this message:
"The email address you just sent a message to is no longer in accepting your feedback about health insurance reform via:"

I went to the site, and it looks like they have decided to change their tactic. Instead of making a "black list", they are just focusing on information. See...maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks.

I totally disagree Dee Ice. They didn't just receive flack from people emailing them, they also received flack from radio talk show hosts, television broadcasters etc. It was a combined effort, but worked nonetheless.
