Re: In case you didn't notice: Virtual protest

710 Kiro (710kiro.com) in Seattle Wa had an interview with someone who
claimed to be representing truemajority.com (one of the organizations
performing the virtual protest). His claim was that they desired to take
down the internet servers/jam the phone lines if they could, but most of
their communication would be fax machine to fax machine.

The fax approach is probably better than sending off thousands of emails
and being blocked (eventually). Anyway, the traffic would have been spread
out to the representatives in all of the states with a single exception
of one message per X participants copies going to the whitehouse. Thus,
it probably wouldn't have been as noticable as the media might like it
to appear as.
