It has much truth in it, but why not start with e-mail, we know it's more
convenient, it also is generally read by the relevant person who then
gets to judge on its relevence, rather than getting filed in the bin, by
the PA, certainly follow up with a letter if your e-mail doesn't generate
a response, but I feel it makes sense to start by e-mail.

Frontier justive?  I'm somewhat confused as to what gave you that
impression, I just feel it's important to include those with the control
of the budget to get a site made accessible included in the discussion -
it's certainly worked in my experience, where I've had success in
changing javascript which makes sites inaccessible better.

I also find it somewhat insulting for you to twist my words that say I do
not have the experience or ability to write a "how to complain document"
to make out I'm generally lacking in both.
