Sometimes, I get really perplexing emails, and it’s hard to know how to answer them.
I decided that perhaps a Magic Eight Ball approach would work best. For example, consider this one:
>Name: doesn’t matter
>Message: do you really get trapped by the “Mormon people”??? you are quite dramatic about it. they sound like awful people.
Um, Signs point to yes.
Don’t like that answer? I’ll shake it one more time.
Hmm. Ask again later.
Now, I have a few questions for the old Magic Eight Ball myself.
Isn’t it kind of stupid to put “doesn’t matter” in the contact name of your email when your NAME is your email address?
The MEB says:
It is decidedly so.
Isn’t it fairly apparently this email was sent by a Mormon (possibly semi-illiterate or non-English speaking) who wanted me to feel stupid about my “drama,” and also attempted some irony by saying “they sound like awful people?”
MEB says: It is certain.
Wow, amazing how that works….
