    emails described as news.  It's like wow, 2 years ago I sent you some small number of dollars as part of an actblue bundle of people I was supporting, and now every day I have to get donations request disguised as news.   Urgent or Breaking News no less.  I've had to actually pull away from several of the candidates I supported just because they are all flooding my inbox, and this upcoming election cycle I'm not going to give to anyone that's not local just because because I can't take the daily URGENT reports of some commisioner (in some county I've never heared of in some state I will never visit) of doing some atrocity that I really really need to give money to X house member whose district includes some small counter of said county to fight that corruption.  Yeah right, good grief, the drama.

    I'd love to support their election campains if they'd leave me the heck alone the rest of the time.

      And a lot of those supposedly Urgent and Breaking reports go on to say "Please help us meet the funding deadline of midnight tonight so that we can stop this terrible thing from happening." The only problem with that is, every night of the week/month/year has a midnight deadline for them :-/
