FEMA site fails ADA 508 compliance

FEMA Online Claims Site: http://www.fema.gov/register.shtm

WARNING: This site is NOT ADA Section 508 accessibility compliant, and will ONLY work with Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 6. Firefox, Opera, Macintosh and Linux users are SOL.
See http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9231271/
See http://www.informationweek.com/story/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=170701321
Please file a complaint on your own or on behalf of all those unable to afford or are unwilling to be forced to use defective, proprietary, non-standard, sub-standard commercial software. Please point out the federally mandated accessibility requirements, as noted on the nice helpful link [http://www.fema.gov/help/508.shtm] on every page, saying that FEMA is committed to accessibility.
There is even a email address, to allow people who think that accessibility to this site is sub-optimal, to contact them. If you or anyone you know anyone who feels this way, or is unable to access FEMA resources in their time of need, they should send an email to:
and I'm sure they will be pleased to sort it out. Your tax dollars at work.

Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.
