(Yeh, so I interpreted the FEMA site statement to remove the doubletalk. So?)

“FEMA site requires assistance seekers to use Internet Explorer 6”

“The good news: If you’ve survived Hurricane Katrina, the government will let you register for help online. The bad news: But only if the computer you’re using is running Windows.”

So, if you’re using a secure, modern, standards-compliant browser, and need to register for disaster relief with FEMA, its website won’t let you. Actually, that’s not so strange. A feeb agency that’s supposed to deal with emergency/disaster relief requires that people use a disaster-prone browser. I makes sense, in a lame, idiotic sort of way.

“We’re from the government; we’re here to help.”

Riiiiiight…
