I wasn't going to post  FEB 01 2001

I wasn't going to post anything today, but I got this email that so perfectly explains why I wasn't going to post today that I just had to post it:

Date: 1 Feb 2001 02:20:22 -0000
To: jason@kottke.org
From: jason@kottke.org (jason@kottke.org)**
Subject: hate your site

used to love your site now i fuckin hate it, I just can't stand your fuckin snobish ways anymore. I can tell that you used to love writing the daily posts, but now you only write them because you have readers (hits) who you think love you, but your writing everyday is becoming a struggle because you are busy at work. You don't even have time to set up the web cam properly. If its becoming such a task to write for the site then why continue when we all know that your writing is shit to begin with, and even more so when you only give it half assed effort.
what the fuck is up with you? You don't do your own site properly, and writing everyday must mean that you aint doing your job properly because your hand isn't fucked up enough from using a mouse to be too tired to play games on kottke.org.
You are starting to make me sick, so start being honest and give it up for a while, just leave a day blank, I mean really who gives a fuck. concentrate on what you are good at, which is power point.

At least they liked my PowerPoint slide.

** Note: In case you're wondering why this email is from me, it looks like whomever sent it to me fakemailed it.
