Dear Chairman Ergen,
As a parent, I feel your company's ad campaign using the phrase "sucks" has not been thought through very well.
We desperately try to teach our children to refrain from using the type of crude and inappropriate language your ads actually promote and encourage.
Please consider how your ads are serving to undermine me as a parent and encourages imitative behavior that most parents do not find acceptable.
I look forward to hearing from you on this matter.
Dear Chairman Ergen,
As a proud American, and an ardent supporter of free speech, I feel your company's ad campaign using the phrase "sucks" is perfectly acceptable, humorous, and entirely apt.
I desperately try to teach everyone I know, from adults to children, to think for themselves. To listen to and evaluate all forms of expression they encounter without prejudice, bringing to bear both critical thought and an open mind. And, if they disagree with a given idea, to speak out about why they disagree, rather than demanding that the offending idea be eliminated from the discourse.
Please consider this wonderful gift - the inalienable right of every American to read, say and think what they want - when choosing how to respond to the parents who are currently undermining that gift with their shrill and misguided attempts at censorship. Frankly, I think that they, like TV, suck.
I look forward to hearing nothing more about this matter.
One million moms might be wrong.
As a non-parent, I feel your company's ad campaign using the phrase "sucks" is funny, but only marginally funny.
We desperately try to eat our children with refried beans while using the type of crude and inappropriate language your ads actually promote and encourage, but much, much worse.
Please consider how your ads are serving to undermine me as a non-parent and discourages imitative behavior that most non-parents do not find acceptable. Words are just words, and children who swear like drunken sailors are funny.
I look forward to hearing from you on this matter and eating your brains straight out of your open skull with a rusty ice cream scoop, served with a delicious chianti.
