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.
