Sometimes it just has to be said

I received an email from someone residing in America (at least that's what the email header tells me) who had nothing to say except spout several swear words. It seems the person felt a need to vent themselves regards one of my articles although which one vexed them isn't something I can hazard a guess because they never said. Kind of loses the argument from the start on that score. Perhaps if they had explained then I might have contemplated a reply – alas, they didn't so no reply was required on my behalf.

I guess I just have to accept that there are people out there that crawl out of the woodwork from time-to-time who can't seem to hold back while under the influence of a new email account with an inability to express themselves except to fire off some expletives.

If anyone finds any of my articles upsetting then by all means please do send an email but at least try to explain which article you're struggling with, that at least shows you have a brain (this does not, of course, include all the lovely articulate emails I have received over the years to date. I've enjoyed some of our debates).

For the fun of it, here is the inexpressive email from 'Ea Onln' (made up new name) in all its glory with their newly acquired email account just for me: (I apologise in advance for the authors  swearing – shows a little mind is behind the email – as can be seen, the author really had nothing to say in the end)

“you have to be one the sickest pieces of shit i've had the displeasure of encountering. i hope you fucking suffer for the rest of your miserable life you fucking twat.”


I wish you well 'Ea Onln' and hope that you didn't bust a blood vessel during your venting. May light shine on you and calm your nerves :)
