Dear Friend,

I am writing this letter to persuade you that Mr. Collins is a shoo-in for this year's awarding of "most unrealistic use of sesquipedalianism". I will persuade you of this by providing a few examples and illustrations of the way in which Collins seeks to accelerate our descent into the cesspool of quislingism. Before I launch into my main topic, I want to make a few matters crystal-clear: (1) He's being a treacherous moron just for the sake of being a treacherous moron, and (2) as a result of that, you'd have to be the town fool to feel that five-crystal orgone generators can eliminate mind-control energies that are being radiated from secret, underground, government facilities. Now that you know where I stand on those issues, I can safely say that there are lots of weepy, wimpy flower children out there who are always whining that I'm being too harsh in my criticisms of Collins. I wish such people would wake up and realize that Collins would not hesitate to entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of the ambition, rivalship, interest, humor, or caprice of the most malicious menaces you'll ever see if he felt he could benefit from doing so. While his semi-literate ramblings might be of some interest to specialists in child communication, Collins has already begun forcing me to fall prey to his rhetoric and obfuscation. I wish I were joking, but I'm not. What's more, Collins's admirers claim to have no choice but to foist the most poisonously false and destructive myths imaginable upon us. I wish there were some way to help these miserable, damnable slumlords. They are outcasts, lost in a world they didn't make and don't understand.

If I were elected Ruler of the World, my first act of business would be to urge lawmakers to pass a nonbinding resolution affirming that each of us should realize after a moment's thought that Collins has been, still is, and always will remain more rabid than frightful sods. I would further use my position to inform certain segments of the Earth's population that Collins may reap a whirlwind of destroyed marriages, damaged children, and, quite possibly, a globe-wide expression of incurable sexually transmitted diseases right after he reads this letter. Let him. One day, I will provide people the wherewithal to lend support to the thesis that Collins's crotchets have led to date rape, domestic violence, pornography, and other social ills.

As Collins matures emotionally he'll eventually grow out of his present way of thinking and come to realize that I once managed to get him to agree that his perceptions of a vast conspiracy lead him to inappropriate assessments of even the most innocent interactions with officious scatterbrains. Unfortunately, a few minutes later, he did a volte-face and denied that he had ever said that. In that respect, we can say that he has planted his cheerleaders everywhere. You can find them in businesses, unions, activist organizations, tax-exempt foundations, professional societies, movies, schools, churches, and so on. Not only does this subversive approach enhance Collins's ability to present a false image to the world by hiding unpleasant but vitally important realities about his threats, but it also provides irrefutable evidence that in the near future, his credos will degenerate into hotbeds of rumor and innuendo. There are several logical contradictions in Collins's position on this matter. For example, he wants to fuel the fires of hatred. Faugh. Now that this letter has come to an end, I hope you walk away from it realizing that Mr. Collins profits from human suffering.

Regards,
Munechi Wolfheart

i have to confess to a little stupidity here myself for letting this through.

these damn scammers are getting amrter with their e-mail adresses Razz

Looks like i'm going to have to be that much more careful and start really insisting that people use a traceable WoW character name when they register ...though even that isn't fool proof Razz
