There is. It's called social media. Supporters, as well as critics, have used social media platforms to express their feelings.

Plenty of supportive comments for Wagner on social media too ... as well as some non-supportive ones, unfortunately.
(Although Wagner said that she intended to take a break from social media, she already changed her mind once and sent the Jan 15 tweets. And just because she has not been posting on Twitter and Facebook does not mean that she is not quietly looking at comments. ETA: Or someone could keep tabs on her social media accounts on her behalf, and pass along a general sense of the volume of favorable comments as well as some good examples. It would be an excellent little project for an intern for her agent or one of her sponsors, for example.)
Not disagreeing with you at all, Olympia. What I'm about to say is NOT intended to discourage anyone from sending old-fashioned snail mail or e-mail.

Social media platforms are double-edged swords in that negative comments are visible to everyone -- as are positive comments.

(The account really is hers. I remember that @ashwagner2010 tweeted the link when she first joined tumblr.)
Good for you, skateluvr.

MODS, a small request for you:
Would love for you to fix skateluvr's typo in "beleaguered" in the thread title. Thx --from the spelling "police."
