I just got an email from Pro Flowers and hit the unsubcribe link. They are gutless. Let them get the Libs support.

“Let them get the Libs support.”

Never happen.

The libs are all for ‘boycotting’ but never for ‘buycotting’.

They only play ‘half’ the game.

I know some liberals, and they're CHEAP. The ones I know won't buy flowers online.

Hey, very un-informative!
You just provided a link to flowers for all occasions like I would see anytime, what is the problem?

At least provide the email.

Don’t forget that Sherri’s Berries and CherryMoon Farms are also their brands. Order elsewhere, send them a copy of your order. Mother’s Day is coming.

We did yesterday. Can't say we will miss them either, the quality of their flowers has really gotten terrible and customer service didn't even bother to contact me after I complained. Sincerely hoping this house cleaning for Rush will lead to better, more conscientious advertisors.

Is proflowers affiliated with 1-800 flowers? I have never used proflowers that I can recall, but have used 1-800 flowers fairly often.

I just went to thie web site and sent them this...”Cancelling your advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show necessitates my no longer purchasing your product. That will go for my Mother, Sister, 3 Brothers in law and many friends. The media will gleefully advertise your cancellation. I will explain the importance of boycotting your product and why”.

Bad decison to send out their unsolicited email so soon after removing their ads from Rush. I unsubscribed, too.

I did the same this morning and got this as part of their reply:

At ProFlowers, our mission is to delight our customers with fresh and long lasting flowers, and that is our singular focus each and every day. We do not base our advertising decisions to align with any particular political view or opinion as our employees and customers are as diverse as the USA. Mr. Limbaugh?s recent comments went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company. As such, ProFlowers has suspended advertising on The Rush Limbaugh radio program.

I read further down the Freep page and found out lots of advertisers canceled Rush, so I canceled ProFlowers
here is what I said:

I no longer wish to do business with your company.

When a woman testifies in front of Congress that she has so much sex and needs the taxpayers to pay for her contraceptives (after we pay for her schooling too) then she has called herself a slut. ***
Rush Limbaugh just told the truth.

I started using Proflowers BECAUSE of Rush, you cancel with Rush over this and you lose me too.

Goodbye
my email
*** (OK she didn’t talk about herself but taxpayers don’t need to pay for anyone’s pills or condoms)

“Suspended”.....they’ll be back when the heat dies down. A little known fact outside of the Sales department at a radio station is that a show like Rush’s being syndicated must buy a certain amount of Ad Time. Most of this time is NOT during Rush’s show. This also gives the sponsors a degree of separation from the show.

ProFlowers said, “We do not base our advertising decisions to align with any particular political view.” But, by suspending their advertising on Rush Limbaugh, that's exactly what they are doing.

I hope you were able to tell them why.

If you are anyone else is using Carbonite, drop them and tell them why.

There are a lot of other options. I like Crashplan.com It is free if you are backing up to your own computers or friend or work, and it is more reasonable than Mozy or Carbonite if you want to use their cloud.

It is cool and easy to use. My manager at my new job site put me onto it.

With Rush, we are seeing that Boycotting does work. He, Hannity, and others always say it doesn’t work, but in reality, they have always feared it and lie to us about the effectiveness because they don’t want it turned on themselves.

I love Rush, Hannity, Levin and others, but if they ever tell me a boycott won’t work, I won’t believe them.

I have been boycotting General Motors, General Electric, MSNBC, Disney, and a lot of Hollywood actors for a while. Why give my hard earned money to people who are destructive to my way of life?

Unsubscribed from them and will no longer use them, and I used them a fair bit (lot of friends in the USA, and flowers make a nice gift to cheer up someone who is feeling down.)

Added the All part because I now need a good replacement service! Any suggestions?

I know boycotting works, but that wasn’t my point.

Liberals ‘boycott’ but never ‘buycott’.

In other words, these advertisers are bound to lose conservative customers from pulling out and won’t gain any liberal customers.

They may end up ‘cutting off their noses to spite their faces’.

The seven (so far) advertisers attempting to kick Rush to the curb are:

Quicken Loans, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Citrix, Carbonite, and Legal Zoom, and now ProFlowers.

It makes me wonder if the reason Hannity switched to Mozy from Carbonite was because they jumped ship on him? Who knows.
