One Response to “ALA Election Finals”

    Hi, Jessamyn
    Here’s my rant on why I didn’t vote. My computers DO NOT PERMIT POPUPS! The computers where I work (and the one at home that my husband uses for professional efforts) BLOCK POPUPS.

    I do not administer these machines. (Nor do I want to!) I WROTE to ALA to complain, but the truth is, I am getting tired of the smug assumptions that this organization has made about me and how I use computers.

    They even had the nerve to ask me to renew ONLINE. Now, I know, that doesn’t sound so bad. BUT THEY DIDN’T give me a choice either. If they had, I might have considered using my credit card in their online festival of renewals, but, since they just ASSUMED I would march to their e-tune, I dug in my heels and, yes, complained. Interestingly, when I complained THEY DID send me paper to complete. Of course, that was about money.

    Complaining about the election process? Well, THAT hasn’t gotten a response yet.

    Thanks for letting me yell.

    Be well,
    Barbara Wurtzel
