Debate about the use of frequent emergency alerts sent to cell phones

In an effort to get it out of the other thread, here's a new one.

After a few more alerts and my wife getting woke up from one, she demanded I turn them off. So I did. No more Amber Alerts to my phone.

Just sayin, if you simply googled it you would be able to find out that they can be turned off. Not that hard.

They weren't all at once. Those are just some of them.

These things happen like 2-3 times per year. If somebody is so put out by it that they go to the trouble of disabling alerts, then it's a pretty good bet they don't give a shit anyway.

Again, this isn't a discussion about whether or not people should be irritated. From a systems standpoint, you can't control that. The question is how the system could be improved so that fewer people are irritated

You can disable the alerts and still give a shit and be informed about the situation.

Yes, the fact that they can indeed be turned off has been pointed out already, but thanks anyway for the breaking news, Ace. Although, not everyone knew that when their phones were blowing up overnight.

Everyone knows how to use Google. Apparently you just want to fit in with the rest of the jackasses that infest this place.

I guess. They just give way less of a shit and are informed later than the rest of us, if at all.

I got the alert around 7 pm then received another about 1 hour later. After the second one I put my finger on the dismiss and did not receive another. I did get a message when my phone went into sleep mode and I woke it displaying the amber alert. This is on a Nokia windows phone using ATT towers thru H2O wireless. I didn't feel put out or bothered.

I would suspect the same folks that get upset about the Amber alert are the same folks that blow a gasket out driveing when something doesnt go there way.
