I've tried to get in touch with the UCC to encourage them to organize a boycott of ABC, but so far, no luck. I'll let you all know more as I get it.
In the meantime, georgia10 seems to have a handle on the "Excommunication" issue, and you can always go to Talk To Action, a collective enterprise against the theocrats, led by Fred Clarkson, Bruce Prescott, troutfishing, and myself, among others.
As a parting word, let me just agree with a number of other posters on the threads lately: is it something in the water? Because Jeebus, it seems to be getting crazy lately...
UPDATE: The Talk To Action folks say they've been having some bug issues this morning. You may need to try this URL to get through.
