    Use better judgment in the items you include in your email newsletter. I saw the item “Adweek Profiles 24 Rising Brand Stars.” I clicked on it. That brought up my company’s internal security, requiring two more clicks. I got through, and it took two more clicks to get to the item. I started reading it, whereupon, a pop-up appeared requiring me to sign up for Adweek’s service if I wanted to continue. That, my friends, is not a good customer experience. Yes, I realize Adweek sets its policies. But after spending minutes just clicking, then clicking again, then clicking again, to run into wall isn’t good. Realistically, do you think I’m going to click one of your links again? Why should I?

      Don, thank you for taking the time to email Capitol Communicator about the problem you had when you clicked on a link to a story that was first posted elsewhere. We are sorry that happened to you, but we put in the link to the original source because if we use a story we did not create, we will attribute it to the original source and that’s what we did in this case. And, so far, no one else has reported to us that they had a problem with that link. Thanks for pointing out the problem you experienced and for reading Capitol Communicator.
