If You Want To Send Hate Mail...

I made my email address available (it isn't listed on the blog page itself, but the address is obtainable to the enterprising from the page with only a couple clicks of a mouse) so that I could interact with those who wished to objectively discuss things, but preferred to do so in private instead of the "comments" area. I prefer having objective comments placed in the comments area, but I understand if some wish to email.

I've received a few nice comments in email, and loads of others as typified by the following:
Subject hey, ####head to me

why do you obsess on obama's preacher? got nuthing else to write about. how about soem more s####y excuses for chess games, or more racist redskin footbal talk. yer an idiot. #### you. obama/malcolm x 08

As they go, this one is trite to the point of absurdity, and I have received many more that are very imaginative and more curiously constructed. I don't mind, really, as some of them provide a delightful diversion from the toils of daily life. That leads to my request; if you must send this type of missive, please make it interesting.

Here's a hint: Scatological, anatomical, and parentage aspersions do not automagically translate to riveting prose.


  1. I'm jealous. I haven't received hate-mail in a long time. And I have yet to get an insane comment from a follower of the Religion of Peace and Tolerance(tm). I mean, what's a guy got to do to get a fatwa, eh?

  2. Heh, can you draw cartoons? The answer may lie in the message medium.


Please keep it clean and NO SPAM!
