House limits constituent e-mails to prevent crash

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.
As a result, some constituents may get a 'try back at a later time'
response if they use the House website to e-mail their lawmakers about
the bill defeated in the House on Monday in a 205-228 vote.
“We were trying to figure out a way that the House.gov website
wouldn’t completely crash,” said Jeff Ventura, a spokesman for the
Chief Administrative Office (CAO), which oversees the upkeep of the
House website and member e-mail services.
The error message in its entirety reads:
“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.”
The war on privilege will never end. Its next great campaign will be
against the privileges of the underprivileged. H. L. Mencken
