Dotan hi,

Even though we haven't tried as a community to approach such
webmasters on a regular basis, history shows that people approached
webmasters as individuals, and usually it did not succeed. Maybe
trying as a group would have a better effect.

Now, approaching several websites at the same time should be OK, as
usually they do not correlate and share information about: "hey XXX &
YYY & ZZZ & WWW all sent me complaints about W3C compliance...".
Moreover, history shows that long term coordinated events are harder
to pull over one time energy spike.
