If you're like me and you've had enough of EA/Mythic/Origin (whoever) and really want to make your voice heard - then maybe you'll want to join me in becoming an EA investor - somebody who can actually have questions answered (if not resolved)... As a share holder of a stock, you have certain "rights". One of those rights is an EXPECTED response to a question directed to the Board of Directors. Currently the value of a share of EA is around $27.50 - and one freekin' share qualifies you as a "Share Holder". It is worth noting here, that the Board of Directors of any publically held company is charged with a mission of - above all else - PROFIT. So, get out your checkbooks and debit/credit cards and invest $28 bucks in the ability to get EA/Origin's corporate attention. Buy 1 share and then you can send your (professionally edited - if you wish to do any good and receive a response) email to EA's Board. Here's a link to one of many places where you can become a stockholder... ScottTrade (I'm sure you've heard of them). A one-time fee of $7 bucks get's you the ability to have your voice finally heard.... Here's the message I - (as a new share holder) - sent tonight: Family members have made me aware of a barrier to share value that could be quickly remedied with an eye toward replacing the current chargé of the Origin Store. Briefly - it has come to my attention - that the Origin Store is "broken" regarding purchases of Ultima Online products. Please address this issue in the most expedient manner possible. Regards, (your name here) Shareholder Here is the link to EA's stock holder's question page, where (as a share holder) you can converse with EA's Board of Directors directly: http://investors.ea.com/contactus.cfm You spend $10 to $14 bucks every month on every account you have. A "one time" expense of $28 is freekin' doable people ! Join me !
