The FFWGA is about to launch an intensive campaign targeting FOX and its sponsors.
House fans will be instrumental in our success.
The AMPTP (Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers) only cares about numbers. House averages a 10.5/16 share. It averages 7.9/19 share in the 18-49 demo. A 30 second ad costs $294,000.
What does those numbers mean?
Fox needs House. The fans cannot let them forget it. The campaign will consist of making phone calls, sending in postcards, boycotting certain products, and circulating a demographic survey.
To help the WGA the House fans must united and organize. The FFWGA created ffwga_house for the sole purpose of supporting the strike and the writers. It is imperative that we remain respectful and professional at all times. We are not shippers and not fangrls and f@nboys here. We are a coalition of concerned House fans that want to support David Shore and the other wonderful members of the House writing staff.
For violators, there will no questions, no warnings, and no appeals. You will be banned from the central community and its affiliated journals. To be completely blunt: Do Not Fuck With The Writers (that's the AMPTP's prerogative). Our sole purpose is to support the WGA, remain in steadfast solidarity, and keep the fans energized and organized.
The strike reduces the safety buffer between the fans and the writers (or actors). We can call the various Guild headquarters. We can send letters and postcards directly to them. We can join the demonstrations; debate whether the Odyssey was or was not written by a woman between shouting rallying cries. That is both fantastic and frightening. Someone could get hurt.
Therefore, if the FFWGA finds out any of the information posted in the livejournal or on www.wgasupporters.org is misused or exploited for reasons other than supporting the strike and securing fair compensation agreements for Guild members it will be removed. Moreover, we will track down the username(s) involved and alert all the necessary authorities. We will ban you from the community.
This is nonnegotiable. It is not up for debate.
I care about the writers receiving a fair contract; I care for their safety more.
