    that nowhere in the response do they indicate that they will pull their spots. I guess they think RL just needs to be talked to a little bit. No more flowers from these folks!

    •  Hard to say what they think (14+ / 0-)

      The person who responded to triumph is likely a staffer who cannot say more than this until the higher powers in the company make a decision about whether to pull the ads.

      The best time to share these concerns with a company is actually before they go into their meeting to decide what to do--I'm sure this email influenced them.

      I thought it was a powerful comment, because it juxtaposed the very positive feelings of one customer, who associates this company with a healthy romantic relationship because of the Valentine's flowers, and the very negative, nasty, anti-romantic, unhealthy attitudes of Limbaugh.

      A flower company is in the business of good feelings: romantic love, Mother's Day, etc. Even when flowers are sent in times of grief, it is still part of the circle of love, friendship, affection.

      Limbaugh is dark, negative, antagonist, bad-tempered: the very antithesis of flowers.

      when it's coming from advertisers, he will be reminded that they are paying the bills; and, when it's by one of the ClearChannel lawyers, he will be reminded that a lawsuit would be very, very expensive.
