Two weeks ago we changed the title of our regular hate mail repository to "Far-Flung Correspondence." Keep flinging poop at us, and we'll keep publishing it.
This week, many of you who know how to read, correctly read the word "fuckload" in a headline describing a "fuckload of diamonds." But you were completely perplexed that "fuckload" was a description that denoted something in a mass quantity. Then, one pen pal blasted a writer with stupidly offensive slurs in response to being blocked—further confirming that blocking this writer was the correct decision. And as usual, our correspondents were mad about holidays and reformatting. More of our far-flung emails, posted below.
SUBJECT: I appreciate
BODY: Thank you for not posting the letter I sent on July 4. I was feeling patriot that day. So go fuck off, shit for brains. See ya!
"Goddamn popular," sounds like a sassy compliment from the 50s or something. I'll take it!

BODY: Heres one, get that goddamn popular stories crap out of the left side of my webpage, stop fucking with your website ahhhhh

Seriously, what. the. fuck?
What's your goal here, dude? Proving that you are in fact a spout for hate speech?
SUBJECT: You blocked me (TheBlackRobe)?
BODY: Just for calling out your indecipherable writing?
REPLY: It was for the "proof read much?" comment. If you want to point out a typo or poorly constructed sentence, don't be a dick about it. For example: http://gawker.com/thanks-it-shou…
RETORT: You're a thin skinned little faggot
And the fuckload of emails about fuckload.

That's all in our monkey shit correspondence this week! Enjoy a summery weekend—get outside, take a walk, enjoy your day.
