“The House of Representatives is currently experiencing an
extraordinarily high amount of e-mail traffic. The Write Your
Representative function is therefore intermittently available. While we
realize communicating to your Members of Congress is critical, we
suggest attempting to do so at a later time, when demand is not so
high. System engineers are working to resolve this issue and we
appreciate your patience.”
Here is the story. The associated explanation is this:
The House is limiting e-mails from the public to prevent its websites
from crashing due to the enormous amount of mail being submitted on the
financial bailout bill.
Gee, I wonder if all those people are for or against the bailout?
I thank Carrie Conko for the pointer.
