Sure. Used my cell cause I get free long distance. Didn't speak to Dylan, but the agent was helpful. Had to put my complaint in writing, but, like I said, my problem stopped and the repercussions echoed. Strongly. I didn't have to do dinkum after that.
Since imgflip is using a hosted server and a call center, they have to pay for each incoming call. Call center experience tells me that, unless you have major pull, the reps you deal with are supposed to handle calls in about three minutes.

The problem of answering so many notifications for your own submissions should not be difficult to reprogram if the source code is documented. An if-then-else routine would work.

By now, they are patched, but I expect another upgrade in the offing. It may be months down the road, but another patch will be due before summer is out.
