    My own Netflix account was set to reactivate tomorrow, after having it on hold for two months on account of limited finances. Looks like I'll be catching up on my reading this year.

    My note to them, through the PR link you provided:

    Netflix advertises with Rush Limbaugh, who promotes hate and divisiveness to his millions of listeners. As a long-time customer of Netflix, my account with you will remain on indefinite hold, until this changes.

    As it is your option to advertise as you see fit, it is also my option to avoid doing business with companies who elicit their revenue through media as detrimental as the Rush Limbaugh show, whether it is on a national or local level.

    The Occupy movement is powerful, not because it is fighting for the rights of a few hundred people to sleep outdoors, but because it is fighting for the right of millions of Americans to sleep indoors. --- Van Jones

      Netflix has not and does not purchase advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show. We do buy network radio advertising and have confirmed that  two Netflix spots were picked up in error as part of local news breaks during the Rush Limbaugh show. We have instructed our advertising agency to make sure that this error will not happen again.
      Made my day! I'll be replying to this with a sincere thanks that they checked into this.
