Feedback Form No More

It appears Etisalat's incompetence has removed any chance for a user to complain about the blocking of a site...

The "Feedback Form" link no longer works (it points to http://eim.ae/feedback, a URL which no longer exists)

As is usually the case, I happen to possess a greater ability to provide customer service to Etisalat's customers than Etisalat itself by providing the following URL...

http://feedback.ecompany.ae/doconfirm.jsp?choice2=1&username=

Simply hit that link, and you no long have to provide a username or password when complaining about a website (perhaps you were unable to complain in the past due to concerns of anonymity, now you can.)

It posts in the end to http://feedback.ecompany.ae/sendMail.jsp, which seems not to be working either.

Having an URL script doing this is dangerous, somebody might write a script and overload their systems.

Well, I hadn't bothered to report one of these in a while because it seemed so pointless, but when I received my favorite teabag icon while looking for a cake recipe at http://www.cakechannel.com/cake-recipe.html I knew things had gone too far. I did try the usual channels to know avail. I quite happily filled in all of the blanks and was told I didn't exist, which is absolute shite, so will now try your link. Thanks!
