I get email from a Spratlin

Hmmm. I just chewed out one repulsive little Spratlin named Daniel, when I get this email from a Spratlin named Ric. It’s a vaguely threatening email, too.

Mr. (I use the term loosely) Myers,

As a college professor, you should be accustomed to different points of views no matter what the subject matter might be advocating. Why not embrace another view point rather than using your little professor-ship title to belittle an individual.

In the real world which you seem to not live in, belittling can cause harm in many ways, even to oneself.

Careful my fellow citizen.

Best regards,


I feel no need to embrace the fallacious point of view of a blinkered bigot, thank you. And I don’t respond cheerfully to veiled threats from pissant Christianists.

Uh-oh. More email from the sprat. You’re all annoying him.

Tell all your BULLSHIT friends to keep sending me emails on your behalf, since you have no balls to do it yourself. My junk folder can hold billions.

Best Regards,


Now don’t spam the poor confused fellow; if you’re writing to chat with him, that’s all right. But I’m not at all interested in talking to him, myself.
