I’ve just been sent an email containing sentiments like this:
When I hear that a prisoner – who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and ‘fed special food’ that is paid for by my taxes – is complaining that his holy book is being ‘mishandled,’ you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts:
I don’t care.
I’ve replied to the sender saying, Take me off your copy-to list! I do not want hate stuff like this! I do not want to be told things like “F–k off, we’re full.” If these people want to push these ideas, let them start their own blog or web site where I have the choice of looking at it or not.
Unfortunately, since sending out all those emails about our school reunion, some people have started sending me all their “you must see this” stuff. Some of it I don’t mind, like the jokes. But others are these hate mails and masses of cute animal photos or weird Photoshopped pictures, or links to You Tube videos that I haven’t got time to waste seeing. Grrr.
6.40pm: What did I tell you? Another one of these time wasters just came in from one of my Northam addressees. It’s not offensive but it goes straight into the bin. I’ll have to ask him to stop.
