We done & gone & broke the web...
In the course of checking in w/ the remaining Sinclair Advertisers (80 less than there were this time last week) I ran across this msg:

"Thank you for your support. Unfortunately, due to the extreme volume of emails (nearly 1 million in one day!), we are unable to send your message at this time.You may attempt to send through this link (75 random addresses): Semicolon Separated (Outlook) Comma Separated (AOL, Netscape, Others) If your email program will not send the email, break the address list into several emails and send them separately. We apologize for the inconvenience, and invite you to show your support by calling the advertisers or sending emails from the "send all in this market" link. Use list of all advertisers or the Top 10 List and make a few phone calls! "

One million messages to these people in a day?!!! No wonder the Sinclair stock price is in the tank.
Sinclair shares dropped more than 3 percent Tuesday, falling 23 cents to
$6.26 a share on the NASDAQ market. Sinclair stock dropped about 8 percent on
Monday, and is down from a high of more than $15 a share in January.
