The point of this account to date has been to create tools that people can use to effectively communicate dissatisfaction with DC’s content and the behavior, actions and comments of DC leadership. I’ve posted sample letters, contact information, and suggestions about what to say and how to say it. Here are links to specific posts you may find useful in drafting your own responses, as well as a link to a petition on Change.org, listed in sequential order:
- Rules Of Engagement
- Possible Corrective Actions
- A Sample Letter For Your Retailer
- Time Warner Contact Information
- A Sample Letter For Time Warner
- [Change.org] A Petition Asking DC To Hire More Women
Those tools are now yours to use in whatever way you want to use them. Print them out, reblog them, copy and paste them on forums, in emails, in tweets, whatever. All you have to do to take action is make a few minor changes to reflect the actions you have taken in response to Dan DiDio’s comments and the changes in the DCnU, then click send or drop it in a mailbox.
Please pass this on to people who are frustrated about these changes, but feel helpless to act or don’t know where to start. And please make use of these tools yourself. If enough people send letters, if enough people take action, things will start to change, no matter how slowly or how small those changes may be at first.
It’s important to remember that tools have no intrinsic value until someone picks them up and uses them. In this case, let’s all use them to build something better and more equal than what we have now.
