Spam is not the answer.
I have had some success by mailing the maintainers of web sites,
explaining the problem, and asking them politely to fix it. If people
die of neglect.
Even nVidia listened - their technical support page used to be
accessible only from graphics mode browsers. I pointed out that this
was a catch 22 if you were having problems with a graphics card. A
month or so later, the site was fixed.
It is worth taking a look at the source code for flash pages:
Search enginges cannot read flash, so the pages have a list of links
for the search engine to follow. Some search engines value a site by
the number of links to it. That makes this list a type of advert. I
have seen sites where this list is for a bunch of unrelated companies.
If you can find a competitor in there, you will be able to present a
stronger argument for getting rid of flash.
