BBspot Mailbag

Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.


Believers

The video card that can see through clothes, snags another one...

I think desperation has been defined here.

One reader takes our Trailer Reviews a bit too seriously...

Subject: Your movie review

I'm sorry Mr. Briggs, but I happen to fully understand and enjoy Yu-Gi-Oh episodes, collect the cards and as you put it, "paraphernalia". If you don't like the movie, don't put your personal opinion in it, please. Just give a review about the movie itself..for those of us out there who like it, you just made it that much more of an incentive to keep liking Yu-Gi-Oh and other anime like it.

I replied that a review is supposed to be an opinion. She replied (this time in orange text on a black background)...

Yeah, well, you didn't have to dump on it as much as you did. It wasn't that bad. I saw it, got all the rest of the 3 cards from my friends (didn't have to watch it 4 times in theaters) and even after seeing it, got the DVD. So, it wasn't a complete loss.

The movie wasn't a complete loss, but the same can't be said for you.

Our recent, Ebay foils phishers articles caught one too...

Subject: Ebay Foils Phishers by Removing Password Requirement

WHAT?!?!?? Ebay claimed a victory? What the heck are you guys thinking?????? Removing a password doesn't make a phisher's job worthless...it makes it SO MUCH EASIER now that there's no longer a password. They can just get in and do crap. As for the anonymous phisher, he is a moron because he is thinking like you guys!

Yes, we're the morons.
