How to get a human when calling customer service

How sad is it that we need a website like this?

Some of the newer voice activated automated help lines aren’t as bad- the voice is pleasant and you can actually get things done without a lot of button mashing. However, sometimes I need to talk to a human being- one with critical thinking skills. Now, there’s no guaruntee the person who answers after I mash “0” repeatedly can 1. help me, or 2. has critical thinking skills, but there’s at least a chance!

Adventures in missing the point?

Game description

Wage a war of apocalyptic proportions in LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces – a real-time strategy game based upon the best-selling LEFT BEHIND book series created by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. Join the ultimate fight of Good against Evil, commanding Tribulation Forces or the Global Community Peacekeepers, and uncover the truth about the worldwide disappearances!

· Lead the Tribulation Force from the book series , including Rayford, Chloe, Buck and Bruce against Nicolae Carpathia – the AntiChrist.

· Conduct physical & spiritual warfare : using the power of prayer to strengthen your troops in combat and wield modern military weaponry throughout the game world.

· Recover ancient scriptures and witness spectacular Angelic and Demonic activity as a direct consequence of your choices.

· Command your forces through intense battles across a breathtaking, authentic depiction of New York City .

· Control more than 30 units types – from Prayer Warrior and Hellraiser to Spies, Special Forces and Battle Tanks!

· Enjoy a robust single player experience across dozens of New York City maps in Story Mode – fighting in China Town , SoHo , Uptown and more!

· Play multiplayer games as Tribulation Force or the AntiChrist’s Global Community Peacekeepers with up to eight players via LAN or over the internet!

Again modern Christianity simply copies the world…

Does anyone else find it sad that, due to this game, thousands of Christians will sit inside their houses for hours pretending to ‘save souls’ instead of witnessing to their family, neighbors, and friends?

Has anyone at Tyndale (the publisher who sold the rights) or Left Behind games (the company making it) thought about the reprecussions this might have?

Do we need a Columbine style shooting for people to realize this is a bad idea?
