      Very effective at what, coercion? Your presumption that this is a matter of people stubbornly clinging to some outdated mode of communication is, frankly, offensive. People (including myself) have expressed very specific objections to this change. Irrationally, it would seem, in your mind. You cite the remote control. I cite New Coke.

      Change is not progress. It is merely doing something differently. JC Penney's started doing something differently about 17 months ago and company sales have crashed. They have started to unchange, but the damage might be irreparable and they might find themselves on the same retail scrap heap as Montgomery Wards, Circuit City and Service Merchandise, to name just a few.
      Different better and I find your attitude (and methods) disturbing.

      I agree 100%. Many years ago I taught a class in methods improvement.
      At the front of the class room was a traffic light with a green light
      and a red light. When someone was resistant to change we turned on
      the red light and when they were accepting change we switched to the
      green light. Very effrective.

      For those with red lights on have you seen the new TVs with remote
      controls so you dont have to get up to change the channel?
