You've got... hate mail
« on: July 03, 2006, 11:06:29 PM »
I got my first hatemail from my videoblog.... well, it's kinda pathetic hatemail and sad in it's own way... it's not even very creative nor witty nor even amusing... kinda pathetic really for hatemail.  But I don't expect this fellow to be too bright either, so let's give him a chance!  My motto is try try try again!!!! 
Borked Pseudo Mailed  <nobody@pseudo.borked.net> to me

your'e not only getting a dell you are going to die of aids in 2 years.

I suspect it's some sort of fake cloaked email site, but technophobes can tell me better if it is... because I'd like to sign them up for spam :)

I feel so special.  Not only that somebody at youtube watched a 6 minute blog to get that email addy, but also that they wasted their time emailing me.  Of course that presumes somebody from there, versus here... sent that.  I've had 71 clicks from this and possibly other sites to my vid which is published on youtube.com about another same amount from youtube thus far.

Sad really though.  But dammit, you can't be really famous until people hate you,     

and I've formed a Youtube Group for HIV Videobloggers.   There are two of us (the other is not active on this site that I know of, but he was recently diagnosed and has just started sustiva and truvada and has been giving almost daily reports.   Lwood joined, but I'm not sure if he wants to post his vids under that group or not since they don't directly relate to hiv (mostly) but you are welcome to post your vids to the group lwood... just use the add to group button, I've authorized anybody who is a member to upload (now that I figured out that I could delete them if somebody abuses it.

Bailey, I am sorry you got hate mail. Man, I wish you had the ability to track that loser.  People with strong opinions will always draw the ire of others. I personally would not totally trust nayone with zero enemies :). God/dess knows I have made some online, and am rather proud of them all. Sometimes upturning the cart is a necessary part of living your life in a world that rewards complacency with... well, with a quiet, noiseless death.

i would have been much prouder had there been a rant involved though.

a simple one-liner doesn't really cut it as hate mail. 

I'm very sad about that.   Gawd Dammit!  I can't even procure decent hate mailers. :P

I never had this here at aidsmeds... and haven't since i started posting blogs on youtube... with the exception of now since i posted an email addy in my last blog.    VIDBLOG@GMAIL.COM

i hope to get some emails from you all to include in a future blog, showing this loser how to insult a person properly.

Please title the SUBJECT:   JOKE BLOG

i want scathing insulting and real insults.   I know you bitter queens can do better than a 14 year old toddler.

and dammit, I need material to talk about anyways... so give a guy a hand... with lubriderm :)

i'd like to contrast some 'faggy' insults with his boring straight insult and make a mockery of him.

Of course that means that i am fair game in all manners, but the most obvious being preferable....nothing too 'me' specific as the asstard wont get it then.

i am not upset at all about getting hate mail.  It was expected.   I just want to make a laughingstock out of him now and show him how to really insult people with wit and humor.

...and no, i won't be insulted by what you all say... this is a moment to email me and stereotype.. the blond hair, the nelly manner.. whatever... GIVE IT to me!!!!!

welll.. as long as you aren't especially mean.. :P

I just wanna show the straight boy how insulting is done right because he failed miserably.

Yeah, I agree. As hate mail goes, that was sorta lame.  You really have not had anyone from aidsmeds do the nuke assault? Wow. Well, I have certainly seen some calculated assaults on you here.  Stuff like that is way more worth your time than the, um, myspace.com - worthy email you got.

Seriously try harder to piss people off, Baiiley! I know  you got it in ya ;)

AH, the obvious people and posters here are the frequent attacks of others.  I wouldn't say i've been nuked... but i've been missiled a few times.... those pansies can't nuke me if the tried...  I'm proud to be the calculated assualt person since that might delfect some of it from other people... because if the didn't pick me they'd pick somebody else.. who might not be able to handle it.

but i do have a blog to do...and i'm strapped for material since i don't go out hardly at all lately.

So I think making fun of a aidsbasher is .. well.. fun.

only somebody who truly has hiv can show em how it's done properly.   So i certainly expect ya'll to give me your hiv/aids insults/jokes/humor


of note maybe the fact that previously i got about 1/10th of my views from this site... and for this post thus far... about half in a week.    that means to me that this site is getting much much more hits than before... i'd like to see some stats if thats acceptable to the owners.  Previously, i would have expected merely a dozen or so hits, though it's hard to know with text blogs, it became obvious when i track it with youtube logging information.

I've had over 5400 hits on my blogs there, the vast majority coming from youtube members, so i do reach a much greater audience there, even if some aren't so receptive.. but at least they watch :) and might learn something in the process even if they are idiots.

But the recent trend is 1/2 and 1/2 which i find quite surprising.

I think all the blogs are getting super hits now that poz.com is sending links in their emails to members for the aidsmeds blogs.

So you bloggers.. LISTEN UP... blog your ass out because people are listening!!!

That was a pretty lame comment by youtube standards, Ive seen things like "This Video made me want to gouge my eyes out'  and other clever things... Im sure that some quality flaming hate mail will eventually turn up , we are afterall judged by the greatness of our enemies...
Im not sure if it would qualify as genuine Hate Mail if you solicit it, wouldnt that just be some weird Cyber Masochism?

P.S if youre dead in two years do I get the Hat back ?

perhaps it was his first attempt at hate mailing...well done you for seeing it for what it is though.

Why do most young people not realize that every worthy indever begins with a first small step!

 Keep working at your goals DB the hate mail will come. The ninnyhammers of the world take time to find their targets, but only after a few of their brain cells begin functioning will a worthy attack be formed. Maybe!

Bailey darling.
I rose to the occasion, and recorded my first video, as a witty repartee' to your call to arms.
I have given up on youtube for today, because I found myself becoming infuriated/defeated by the secrets of uploading to my place.
it would be such a shame for me to shoot my poor little computer.

Dear Bailey

You must be so disappointed....I figure if you are going to get hate mail it has to be:

1...Lengthy and worthy of your time

2...The very least a good read and entertaining.

Your hate mail was neither..but give him/her time, as Kate said it was probably their first attempt at hate mail, don't be too hard on them it probably took all day to come up with that, I'm sure they will get better with time... ;)

Hi Bailey...

For several weeks now, I've been studying a great little book, "The Four Agreements". Having read this thread, I want to share something with you from it, that may help you right now:

The Second Agreement: Don't take ANYTHING personally!

"If you can make this second agreement a habit, you will find that nothing can put you back into 'hell'. There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally. You become immune to the black magicians, and no spell can affect you regardless oh how strong it may be. The whole world can gossip about you, and if you don't take it personally you are immune. Someone can intentionally send emotional poison, and if you don't take it personally, you won't 'eat' it. When you don't take the emotional poison, it becomes even worse in the sender, but not in you."
