Can you provide an example of this, please?  I've provided my own
example of how I believe we should approach this problem -- respectful
dialogue with web developers.

Can you provide an example of the type of message you would write --
say, a press release (given your "e.g. in the press" comment) -- that
is helpful and constructive in discussing an inaccessible web site?
Feel free to use a hypothetical "example.com" web site if you can't
find any other examples handy.

Thanks, I look forward to it.
