I don't think that anything else needs to be said here.

And a final one:

From:[email protected]
Subject: Opinion about somethingawful article

GO RE-READ WHAT YOU WROTE and then goto NYTIMES and read the 9/11 Article series and then ask yourself were you trying to be funny, or were you trying just to part of those shameless hucksters who try to profit from such a tragedy by increasing traffic to your pathetic website.

Not only can you not write a piece of drivel but you don't even care about the value of people's lives. Your lack of understanding shows your ignorance and though I wish that your family gets raped, murdered, and mutilated and then crushed by bulldozers and eaten by scorpions, actually I hope something horrible happens to you so that one day you'll wake up and stop being a COMPLETE ASSHOLE!!!

Why don't you go join the taliban you commi sucking dick head. you should be ashamed of even breathing air anymore.

Until you write a formal apology, You still make me sick.

From ANGRY SOMETHINGAWFUL FAN!

I just find it exceptionally funny when people's immediate reaction to an opinion of mine that they disagree with is to threaten me with bodily harm. I do not think that doing this has ever or will ever change my mind about what I wrote, nor will it help to prove whatever point this person is trying to make. From what I can gather, that point is something to the extent of, "IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT PEOPLE'S LIVES I HOPE THAT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE BRUTALLY SLAUGHTERED AND ALSO I AM RETARDED." Makes absolutely perfect sense to me. The charm and brilliance of these people never ceases to amaze me.

Well that's all for now, although I have many more similar emails resulting from that update. I have no idea why these people were unable to grasp the very blatant and simple points I was trying to make, but I hope that if I offended them that they no longer read the site because I think that Something Awful is better off without them. I suppose that I will now go and quietly contemplate the horrible thing that I have written and perhaps join the Taliban.

    The Fandangling Fables of Groggery Gibbonman

    'We’re going to be in trouble!' Little Sister wailed, clutching her favorite book to her chest and sobbing. 'This isn’t fun like a story anymore!' But Big Sister was not listening, she was thinking. She grabbed Little Sister’s book from her and ran into town, yelling 'Help! A book made me and my sister hurt someone!'
