ProFlowers is the enemy. They are owned by Liberty Media.

edited to add: ProFlowers has suspended advertising of Limbaugh

http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002382470



ProFlowers is never going to drop Limbaugh, they are Limbaugh.

Liberty Media is the single largest shareholder of Murdoch's News Corporation.

Boycott ProFlowers and never ever go back. Tell your friends.

5. I think your information is out of date

Not to defend any of them, but Liberty Media traded its stake in News Corp. back to News Corp in exchange for News Corp's controlling share of DirecTV in 2006 or 2007. LIberty Media subsequently spun off DirecTV, which is now a separate, publicly held company.

8. Just incredible send ProFlowers CEO an email!


Apparently, Bill Strauss, CEO for ProFlowers, is either completely tone deaf to the uproar around him, or he has been given marching orders by his parent company, Liberty Media, to stick with Rush till his rating's death!

Send Mr Strauss an email and tell him what you think his company's latest awesome discount promotion, his address is: bstrauss@proflowers.com.

Keep loading him up!

9. Did ProFlowers' CEO just quit?

I sent Bill Strauss, CEO for ProFlowers, another email this evening to request he reconsider his company's support of Rush Limbaugh. Within five minutes I received this auto-reply message: "Please be advised that I am no longer with Provide Commerce..." Provide Commerce, www.prvd.com, is the parent company of ProFlowers.

Either I got the wrong email, or the boss just left the building!

15. According to this site, Bill Strauss joined Shoe Dazzle in Sept. 2011.

See the bio on this page - it says he was formerly with Provide Commerce, so I think it's the same person.

12. Me too

I think you get nicer and cheaper flower arrangements if you go online and look up local florists in the city where you are sending them, at least that has been my experience.

13. I am a previous customer (didn't know about this connection) and emailed to say, "no more."

I emailed them previously and was dissatisfied with their response, so I told them I wouldn't order from them again.

As it happened, I had occasion TODAY to order flowers for a family member.

I did not use ProFlowers.

16. I just closed my account with them

Deleted my payment inforamtion and sent email stating I would be using 800flowers, teleflora or my local florist from now on. I'm sure my measley $200 a year orders won't faze them but made me feel better
