EAGLES-MAIL!!!


Below I have reproduced a sample e-mail from the many that I get from the Eagle Forum:

Subject: EAGLES!!! URGENT ACTION ALERT -- EITHER WE GENERATE CALLS OR WE LOSE
EAGLES!!!

Gayle, Karen and Rep. Christensen met with Governor Huntsman to discuss HB-148 Parent and Child Amendments.

IF WE DO NOT GENERATE THOUSANDS OF CALLS TO THE GOVERNOR IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS ASKING HIM NOT TO VETO HB-148, HE WILL VETO IT AND IT WILL BE A SUCCESS FOR THE HOMOSEXUAL GROUPS AND A HUGE LOSS FOR THE FAMILIES OF UTAH!

PLEASE CALL AND GET OTHERS TO CALL!!!
WE NEED THOUSANDS OF CALLS!!!


I have at least 3 problems with this.
1. SHOUTING!!! These are not calm e-mails. Instead, it's filled with all sorts of all-caps, exclamation points, underlines, biggification of words, and so on. If you're going to e-mail me about an issue, do it in a calm, rational way and not with the shouting nothingness that you sent me.
2. The Eagle Forum sends me these types of e-mails at least 2-3 times a day, sometimes one right after another, so I've got all kinds of shouting e-mails in my inbox. Please, send one e-mail with every issue you've got in any given day. Don't pester me, I'm busy.
3. No information. They send these hyperbolic e-mails out with no information attached. Why not let us read about the issue, then decide. Are you worried you'll be wrong?

Liberals always have to make sure their points are heard. And no, I'm not mistaken.
