Is it a form mail if the person sending copies and pastes? 'Cuz I tell you what... I'd totally do that, if I was her.

   I think their reply is a form mail. I got the exact same one.  I'm 
inferring that a lot of people complained.

There are other gov sites that have problems so I included another one 
as well.

For what it's worth to anyone, here's my thread:

Ms. Martinez,
   Thank you for the prompt reply.  I look forward to the new site. It's 
important to me that this site is easily accessible to my family, 
friends and I so if they need any volunteer testers, please forward them 
my contact information.

thank you,

Macs.  Some users have been able to work around this by downloading the 
Google Chrome browser and then downloading Silverlight in that browser. 
  In light of the problem some users have experienced, our vendor is 
working on rebuilding the application so it will no longer have the 
Silverlight requirement, but that solution is not expected to be 
complete until later this year.
