Yesterday, Mailchimp suspended VCDL's  VA-ALERT account claiming possible  policy violation, but with no explanation of what policy was possibly violated and no warning. After careful review, we can't find any policy that was broken (other than being pro-rights).

The good news is that we were already in the process of moving to a new system (this one) and dropping Mailchimp. The bad news is we weren't quite ready yet. So we had to finish the move yesterday and today.

Because of Mailchimp's actions, an alert on Lobby Day couldn't go out to everyone yesterday as planned. We did manage to get the alert out to our 35,000 paying members late yesterday using our membership system. (Just because you get these alerts doesn't mean you are an actual VCDL member.)

We will repeat yesterday's alert later tonight, so some of you will get it twice. Another alert will follow covering new issues.

NOTE: Currently you can't reach me by replying to these alerts. That will be fixed soon. In the meantime, you'll have to send an email to president@vcdl.org .
