Consider this a formal appeal of this denial.

I state my continued interest in seeing this request fulfilled. I formally object to the use of permissive action via unreliable communication to deny legitimate, lawful requests for public information.

You should be ashamed.

Please complete this response promptly. Thank you!

Why have I yet to receive a legally mandated response to this request under 5 U.S.C. § 552? It's pretty basic! Do you assume I have no interest?

YES. MY INTEREST CONTINUES UNTO THE HEAT DEATH OF THE UNIVERSE. EOM.

Best regards,
