Email from a stranger

December 10, 2008 @ 09:30 By: gordon Category: General

Update (24 June 2010): In response to a polite request from the owner of the email account in question, I have decided to redact the offending email address from this entry.

It’s amazing what some people will say to a complete stranger via email.  For example, I received the following yesterday evening:

From: [redacted]

Date: Tue, Dec 9, 2008 at 21:58

Subject: ott.forsale is dead, dude

as the title reads … stick you charter up a crev-ass

As far as I know I have never met [redacted].  While I am responsible for posting the various ott.* newsgroup charters, I don’t post one for ott.forsale because it’s not an official ott.* newsgroup. (It was replaced many years ago by three more focused groups, but some poorly managed news servers still list it.)

To [redacted], I say this: enjoy the spam, dude.
