    form letters!! please read

    Because of the sweetwater tavern thread, and the letter written...MAYBE we could start a sticky on form letters that members could use to send businesses etc. if needed??
    This would have to be approved by bumper and staff, but might be real helpful for some that don't have the experience in writing letters, or want to make sure they are portraying the right message...
    just a thought.

    +1 this might be a good idea for those that don't like to write their own material but still want to be heard.

    Personally I think half the fun is in writing the letter, but I'm a written word masochist.

    I think this is a good idea. after reading some of the letters on here I must say I am impressed by the quality of the writing and I know I couldn't even come close.
    I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.

    It's an awesome idea. To bad I've gone blind from reading DMan and matiki's posts.

    These results are from searching "Letter to" in the search function of the forum, I am sure there are a lot more letters I overlooked, or that have not been posted. Such as the letter to the DA in FL by derekxc who was having neighbor problems, or other letters like that.

    Post any letters you may want to share. It may help for the organization and establishment of a sticky?

    Letters excellent idea! Form letters not so much. I work for a state representative and can tell you from personal experience nothing gets better results than a personal letter. With form letters, you read one you've read them all. The first 2 or 3 form letters are the only ones that are given a look. After that unless there is something different to the letter they don't even get looked at.

    Write a letter about how you feel. That get's attention. If a politician or business gets 1000 form letters they mean nothing. 1000 individual letters are taken seriously.

    Just my $.02.
