I searched for an email contact on the FBI site and see that the HQ does not have one and "some" field offices do.

What's up with that? See screen shot below.

because a catchall email address for a huge org would be a clusterfuck?

To help prevent hacking of their system.

Because they know a general email address will be inundated with worthless emails from whack jobs.

Their Facebook page is filled with whack jobs, yet they still have it.

Facebook pages are great "idiot magnets" because it separates people with legit issues, from people just looking for attention.  People with real issues will do things like... make phone calls and network to get contact info.

 










Retards who just want to vent and get attention are like moths to the flame on FB, because they get to interact with OTHER retards looking for attention.



So it keeps the email and phone spam a little lower.  












But clearly, they don't want to accidentally cut off legit issues, so they put the bare minimum of contact info on there.

Do they have a twitter?

If so, just send them a tweet.

I think they want you to contact the local field office and not the national HQ.

Contacting the FBI HQ would be like calling the Dominos CEO to order a pizza. If you really need to talk to a Fed call your local office.

I don't know why the FBI director doesn't just set up his own server in his house.

He probably did, but under fake name, like his dog and wife's maiden name.

If they did, I'd hate to the person responsible for reading the emails.  Alien abductions, rantings of the mentally ill, viagra ads...
