From one of my Senators...
Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to contact me via
e-mail. Because of the volume and range of e-mails I receive, it can take
some time to send a response that specifically addresses the subject
raised in your message. I do, however, want to let you know immediately
that your message has been received and that a more detailed response will
be forthcoming. In the meantime, I hope you will visit my website at
http://coleman.senate.gov, to monitor the work I am doing in the Senate.
United States Senate
Those aren't responses.
In other news today:
A form? Nice. I'd expect no more.
Looks like a whole lot of nothing.
You will probably receive a snail-mail letter from your Senator.
Whether it says anything more than the boilerplate email you got or not will be interesting to learn.
Soon you will be getting spam E-mails asking for campaign contributions.
"Shut up and get in line, peasant."

Hey but its OUR GUMMINT... THEY ARE THERE FOR US AND THEY LISTEN!!!
Whole lot of jibba jabba meant to make the stupid people feel like there question was answered.
