I guess I’m lucky that my blog is not too mainstream, because I actually get very little hatemail at this point. It kind of makes me wonder if I’m not working hard enough.
But I got a piece of it today, and it’s the kind I sort of expected I’d get a LOT more of. I thought I’d share it.
You are an ignorant, flaming asshole
That was it! And yes, it was weirdly right-juxtaposed like that.
Here was my reply.

Seriously readers, if you’re going to send me stupid crap, put a little thought into it. Only about a third of codbar’s email was even true, and there were no supporting arguments for the claims made. I expect better. I can’t offer long funny responses if you don’t put any thought into this stuff.
Of course, I realize by asking you to put thought into this stuff that I am definitely barking up the wrong tree.
