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.


This Nigerian Billionaire email got misfiled, so here it is now for your enjoyment...

Hi my name is Burt.i f i had lots of money to give away i would help all of the starving people in the Wourld that i could befor i would give it to people that dont realy need it.sorry.

Well, Janet/Burt thank you for your input. I'll pass along your advice to Esenam himself. You wouldn't happen to be starving would you?

April Fools

In case you missed this year's April Fools joke (which is more than likely because of it falling on a Saturday) here is the link. At least a couple readers didn't miss it, so it wasn't wasted...

No match for "BBSPOTGOLD.COM".

Just had to make sure that this was a hoax the way that only a true nerd could. (I actually emerge'd whois just to look this up right now)

How did I know somebody would do that?

Reaction to Hate Mail

If you didn't see the hate mail posted in the last Mailbag you should check it out. Several readers wrote in with reactions to the vitriol...

I think Angel should look over at the dictionary once in a while when he writes his emails.
I mean, he is already in the library using the computer that I helped pay for the least he could do is get it right.

Perhaps he should write a weekly feature column? The counting was my favorite part.

Well he did promise constant emails, but he gave up quickly.

Mr. Briggs,
I have to ask- what the heck is that whole "hollywood" thing in the posted rant? I understand that as a middle-aged person, I'm not expected to grasp the nuances of slang, but this is so far out that I don't have a clue. I'm just curious.

That slang comes from Angel's own little world.

That's all for this week!
