I get tons of email adressed to someone at MSNBC. I usually just delete them and go about my business, but today I am in a cranky mood. The email: [blue]My husband and I have always been Msnbc viewers. We love Imus in the morning and continued watching the rest of the time. Now that you have put BIG MOUTH Donahue on in the 8pm slot, we won,t be watching Chris Matherws any longer, because he follows BIG MOUTH Donahue. So long MSNB it's been nice viewing you, Only Imus will be watched at this house hold. Barbara & Roy [/blue] This is what I want to reply with. My only question is, can I get in trouble for it? If you look closely, I do not imply that I am the one who should have recieved the email... [red]Dear Barbara and Roy, Do you think I really care that you won't be watching MSNBC anymore? I could give a rats' ass what you watch. As far as Imus goes, he's a schlock. If I could get him off the air without a hassle, I would do so in heartbeat. The guy is way out of touch with the real world. Are you wondering why I am such a prick? Because it's people like you who watch WAY TOO MUCH television and write me everytime they see something on TV that makes them feel 'bad'. It's also because of the people like you who don't know how to use Spell Check. You should be so lucky that I even READ your email, since they usually end-up in the recycle bin. Do me a favor and stop watching MSNBC all together. Listen to Imus (did you know he was convicted of beastiality in 1973?) on the radio. MSNBC does not need freaks like you to watch and bitch. Me PS...Why do you people like to bother me? I don't come to your work and jump up and down on the end of the bed, do I?[/red] What do you think?

Is there a Eric orenson or similar at MSNBC? Scott P.S. they contacted you first. Reply as you wish. As long as you act legally....

I would say do it. You never claim to be a rep for MSNBC, and they sent email to you first.

Change this "me" to "everybody".

Change "MSNBC doesn't need" to "nobody". ....and no part of your e-mail will imply that you're actually affiliated or otherwise connected to MSNBC.

No, but just look at the guy, you can tell he secretly wants to bring a new meaning to the term 'animal husbandry'. I think that and the bed comment (Kids in the Hall origination) are the funniest parts =(

OK, you owe me a new keyboard. Mine's covered in Coke!

Sounds good. In no way did you claim you work for MSNBC. All you were doing was replying to their email that they sent you.

LMAO. These folks are going to be livid. BTW, why would you get these emails anyway?

Just remember, unless you are spoofing, your I/P address will be on the header! Just a bit of advice from an I.T. guy!

I don't know that he has NOT been convicted of it. Libel? Hmmm...I have nothing to gain or persuade by saying it. I don't know why I get the emails, but it has something to do with IDIOTS (on AOL only)putting a comma after the email address of the person, and then putting the persons' name after the comma. My email address is my name and on aol you do not have to put the full email address in to make it get there, just the name...OK, so maybe I do know. If you had the AOL screenname of GeorgeBush, I gaurantee you will get some of his emails...LOL
