10 things to know before you email me
2003-02-17 - 7:27 p.m.
- Most of my email addresses are exclusive, which means that
unless you are already in my contacts list, I won't receive your email.
As an experiment, I'm going to open my diaryland email account and
start receiving email here. However, if I get a lot of spam or
hate mail, I'll shut it down again, and all you will have accomplished
is to prevent others from emailing me. My diary is my
diary. It is not about equal time for all points of view. It
is not about debate. It is a record of my thoughts and
experiences, especially my travel, garden, and birding experiences,
with a little nod to the fact that war is bad for birds and
other living things. If you think my diary is stupid, badly
designed, badly written, or offensive, or that I myself am old, ugly,
stupid, ill-informed, lazy, and just plain in bad taste...
don't bother to write because I simply don't care what you think.
My diary will continue to be about what I think.
- I do not accept attachments in email. Period. End of sentence.
- I can't get your book published. I have never worked one day
as an agent or an editor. I live in my own little universe and have
absolutely no influence in the world of publishing. Don't
email or snail mail your work. It will be deleted or discarded unread.
- I can't loan you any money. I got Enron'd and WorldCom'd just like
- I don't want to chat or instant message with you, no matter how
wonderful you are. You have no idea how excruciating chat/instant
message is for someone who types over 100 words a minute.
- I don't want to have cybersex, exchange photographs, meet you
explore your urge to lick my boots, visit your porn site, purchase
Viagra, or have any sexual encounter with you in any way whatsoever.
And I don't want to look at your pictures of so-called teen-aged
celebrities getting it on with donkeys either. I am just so
- I can't get you a job on a card-counting team, and I am out of
the business of answering 50 bazillion questions about how to count
cards. If you are a beginner to counting cards, you can visit
my page where I have a short discussion of card-counting and
other legal advantage play. The truth is, I played cards
to get money. When I got enough money to suit my modest
needs, I got out. I really, truly,
deeply, sincerely do not want to spend the rest of my life talking
about it. If that sounds crabby, try it yourself, and see how
fast you get tired of answering the same questions over and over
and over and over again.
- If you are a bitter casino employee, then get over it.
If it upsets you to see someone win through legal methods,
then you've got bigger problems than stalking me is ever
going to solve.
- If you're a friend who lost touch because I was in a casino
for years, stop by and say hey. But, um, re-read item #4 first.
- If you've read all these rules and still feel like emailing
me, I do welcome your kind words and insights, but please understand if it
turns out to be impossible for
me to answer all my mail.
