We still had a couple writers stuck on the derailed "Oh Canada" train, but our correspondence was generally well-rounded this week. We saw complaints about our Facebook thumbnail photo (it's usually going to be the photo of Gawker editor-in-chief, John Cook), people requesting that we solve problems that they haven't described, and a perplexing Julian Assange-glowing Alien connection. Below, some thoughtful notes from our pen pals:
We got two emails from one address, both of which described questions they wanted answered while giving as little context as possible. Do you have any ideas?

BODY: You need to fix your Facebook thumbnail situation — I posted your video to my Facebook page and would have loved to have a pic of the cute little kid in the video. Instead, I get a picture of John Cook looking douchey and feigning... something. Can you fix this?
The proportion of subject line to body text in this email is all sorts of bonkers.
