Christopher Maloney, N.D.*, is rightfully complaining about the fact that he has received rude email, and also implies that he may have received harassing phone calls. He’s a sensitive soul, apparently — hundreds of email messages is nothing, I get that much every few hours — but if you are sending nothing but vituperation and anger his way, knock it off.
I repeat, STOP IT.
No phone calls. Email should be arguments, not stab-someone-in-the-eyes loudness. You don’t have to compromise on content, just don’t be stupid. If you are intruding on someone’s personal life, you are in the wrong, plain and simple.
Making the internet a place where the foolishness of kooks is easily spotted, though, is perfectly legitimate. Carry on.
*N.D. is short for “Noisy Duck,” by the way.
