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.

Agreed.

You only need one alert, unless there are significant changes that are critical to pass on. Anything else is redundant.

I've been in places where you are not allowed to have cell phones. Wonder if it turned on people's phones and got them fired.

Yep, that's my opinion - only send a new one when there's new info to be delivered. Repeating it makes sense on TV when people aren't watching all the time, but on phones, there's no need for more than one.

Not only are you being a condescending jerk, you're also being as thick headed as some of the other people here. If you want the word spread, how does it help if people are disabling the alerts due to the excessive nature of them? You don't see the obvious conflict in that?

And I have a kid btw. But feel free to make any assumptions you want about me. It's what all the cool kids do.

How do they work when they come on TV? Is it just a crawl on the screen, or do they completely interrupt programming?

I'm assuming it's like tornado warnings, where they completely interrupt all channels.

That seems excessive as well, you'd think a crawl would be adequate.

Whether some of us like it or not, the more you annoy people with this stuff, the less they'll pay attention to it. Not saying it's right, and I'm not saying the measures they are taking aren't justified, I'm just saying that's how people are.

Either way, they definitely don't need to be interrupting programming in Topeka for an abduction in Springfield. Those two cities are 4 hours apart.

Do I think it's a big deal for people to live with an alert here and there if it'll help save a life? Certainly not. But do I think that the way it was handled could potentially damage the system's usefulness? Absolutely.
New question: How is the Amber Alert System able to determine if you are in bed asleep or working the late shift and on your way home?

It doesn't matter the time of day or night. If a child is in danger then people need to listen up and take action to search their immediate vicinity if possible to help locate the child. It is the LEAST you could do to help save a life!

If it were my child I would want everyone out of bed and searching and frankly I could care less if it interupted anyones attempt to get rest. If you saved my childs life then I would owe you mine!!!

I doubt when the Amber Alert system was created authorities were worried that someone would be "bothered." Especially when that is exactly the purpose of the system to attempt to get help from the public. Maybe some on here think that should be left up to the police.........oh wait, some on CP hate cops too.

My first thought upon reading this post was "Who the hell ARE you?". Then I saw that you are actually Billay / Bo's Pelini, and it all became clear.

You and I don't get along. We never have. If you would like to start over and let bygones be bygones, that's fine. I can do that.

Do you want to start over, or do you want to get into one of those retarded Internet feuds that wind up completely boring everybody else and make us both look like idiots?

Again, that's all well and good, but we're talking about an issue that is driving some people to turn off alerts entirely. Rather than "I could care less if it interupted anyones attempt to get rest" we should be asking "How much will this hurt all future kids' chances by being so intrusive."

In email marketing, there's a balance between providing useful information that people want and overwhelming them with so much information that they eventually bail out entirely. This is the same thing, and those that keep acting like this is a problem individuals need to just get over are missing the entire point.
