It's pretty shocking when it happens, isn't it?

The most vitriol email I received was from a teenager last October who
apparently expected a response from me, from an earlier message (I think
I was actually on travel when she sent it). Also during the last year or two
I rarely answer email from strangers due to huge constraints on my time,
money, typing hands, etc, therefore I placed messages all over my Web
site stating I rarely answer email.

Apparently the girl was upset with me ... she went on for a full
paragraph calling me a "self-serving bitch", and many other names. Hard
to believe and hard to shield oneself psychologically from junk like that.
I have alot of disappointments from Internet the last years, and that
venomous message added to the pile of my disappointments.
