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.

Subject: Your article on ICANN banning www

Dear Mr. Briggs,

I have read your article on ICANN is going to 'ban' www extension and I'd like information about the source so that I may contact ICANN IMO that violates free speech not to mention www can be subdomain not just an alias and is same as and the like.
Thank you very much.

I wonder how many people contacted ICANN directly.

Dear Mr. Briggs,

I read your article on Esenam Ayele. If this man is really this charitable, I would like to contact him to see if he would select me for a random act of kindness. Would you help me contact him?
