I am not perfect. I have many faults as a human. One, is my email addiction. I am constantly dealing with email. I obviously am not obligated to answer email, but I think it is good business to deal closely with the customer (you) whenever possible. Well, this, over the last decade has turned into a full-fledged addiction. I can’t stop it. I am hopelessly bound to my computer or phone or both.
Another fault I have is getting into email battles. Although I am often capable of a congenial conversation, and also am capable of ignoring most haters, sometimes I just can’t avoid it. Sometimes, I have to open my big mouth back. This seldom helps a situation. But, I still do it. Why? Because I am a flawed human being in many respects.
According to a brief search of my blog, most of my previous published email battles were in 2005.
This from NFL Draft Day in 2005 …
This from July 2005 …
And this from September 2005 …
There may be other email battles since then, but either I couldn’t find them or I never blogged them.
Anyway, in the olden days, I used to give out my opponent’s email address and full name, but I have softened my stance. I don’t wish to have anyone cause this person trouble. I just want to show you what I deal with. And why sometimes it would be better off to just delete the mail from the haters and move on…
For purposes of clarity, all of emailer Dan’s email is in Italics and all my email is in Bold:
Enjoy…if that is possible with this tired head idiocy:

Pac Man Jones is just another example of the despicable, ignorant black athlete that soils today's sports and society in general. It is a complete joke to listen to these ignorant people who barely seem human at times. Why this society continues to make excuses for them is unreal. When are we going to hold these animals accountable for their actions just like we do the white athletes? In instead of making excuses for them, why don't you two start telling the truth, quit beating around the bush and act like men for once in you dull existence. The double standard that prevails in this society just creates these imbecilic idiots and you both contribute to that double standard.

thanks for being mindful of our shortcomings, but I am fine with where I stand on this. I wish he handled himself better, but the honest reality is that one only needs to excel at their chosen profession to be successful. Otherwise, they can engage in any number of questionable activities and survive. Even racism!

Maybe in your limited viewpoint, telling the truth is racism but intelligent people call it realism. If you think for one moment blacks in this country are not the root of most of the problems we have in this country then you are as dumb as naive as I think you are. How many white PacMan Jones are there? How many white Nate Newtons are there? How many white Michael Vicks are there? The list goes on and on and on. Everyday we have to pick the paper up or turn the television and read or hear another black athlete in trouble, either in the pros or college.
Because you come from lily white Wisconsin, I hardly consider you an expert on race relations. Open your eyes and see the world for what it is and not the limited viewpoint that your parents brainwashed you with. It starts with education Sturm and the blacks are either dumb as rocks or could care less about school or getting an education and it shows when they become adults. Why do blacks rank the lowest of all students coast to coast at any level of education Sturm? When you got black athletes scoring in single digits on I-Q tests such as the Wunderlick tests when my dog could score at least a 10, that tells you all one needs to know about the blacks in this country. It is called telling the truth Bob not hiding behind the term racism.
People like you are amazing, you would support the likes of a piece of scum like Pacman Jones playing for the Cowboys but I would wager you would not let the douche bag date your daughter? You truly are a hypocrite.
8:10 AM Today
really? so in your estimation playing for the Cowboys should be the same as dating your daughter? You are pretty sharp. Do you hold your musical artists to the same test? I am sure you do. I wouldn't let any Cowboy marry my daughter, I doubt. You go ahead.
9:27 AM Today
Did I say that? You apparently would let "anyone" play for the Cowboys no matter how despicable their past and probably their future are and will be. Do you really think scumbags like Michael Vick or PacMan Jones or the endless list of despicable black athletes going to change? The point was Bob and apparently it just flew past that intelligent level of yours was, apparently you have no problem in letting crap like that play for your team but at the same time would not let the same piece of vermin date your daughter. Most people would find that hypocritical. I for one and I would venture most white people would agree, they do not want the PacMan Jones of the world playing for their team. Take a poll, most whites still can't stand T.O.
Also, if you would not let a Tony Romo or a Jason Whitten marry your daughter, then you really have a problem. But then again considering your strange morals and values, that doesn't surprise me.
P.S.: I notice how you never address the intelligent levels of the whites versus the blacks. Gee, I wonder why.

Because if so, why would you type this?

As for your PS, I think it is absurd to address the intelligence levels of an entire ethnic group. That is called racism. I don't expect you would agree, since he who is guilty of racism seldom admits to it. I would also hope that people would not judge all white people on a chance meeting with you.

You truly are one dumb idiot. Yes, I wrote it, did you read it? The point was dumb ass, you would let Pacman play for the Cowboys but you most likely would not let Pacman date your daughter. That makes you a hypocrite.
Why is it absurd to address the intelligent levels of each race. The intelligent level of each race is very apparent and contributes to likes of Pacmans and the Vicks, etc, etc, etc. Just because you point out a FACT about a race which paints them in an inferior light, that is not racism. The FACT is most blacks at every level of education, coast and coast, rank the lowest. This FACT is easily verifiable. I did not say that all blacks are not educated just the majority of them which is the truth. If one says the orientals are the most gifted and disciplined race of people intellectually, and they are, is that racism Bob? Your problem is that you have a very selective definition of racism. Education is the key for any person in this country to succeed. Apparently education is not an important element in most black households or the majority of them are dumb as rocks. It is either one or the other. Let's blame on their culture, okay hypocrite Bob.
P.S.: When every college in this country have lower academic entry standards for blacks then the standards for all other races, that tells one all they need to know about the differences between the races. But let me guess Bob, you don't think those lower academic entry standards for blacks are racist. You truly are a brainwashed, hypocritical, religious nut.

Your the selective racist Bob. What is wrong, can't stand the heat and answer the questions. Typical of a gutless person like you Bob. Much easier to just call someone a racist and run.
I would love to get your ass in the ring in the next Fight night out but just like answering the real questions, you don't have the guts. I will call the program director and leave my name and number and at least make the challenge. Please selective racist Bob, make my day.
10:13 AM Today
yes. A fist fight. That will settle things. Then maybe we can have a duel at the OK Corral. This is how the educated settle disagreements. Perhaps, a nice game of scrabble after that?
Don't forget your clean hood before you leave the house today, bro.
10:24 AM Today
Face it Bob, you are just a selective racist that can't answer the real questions when posed to you. Your a real big man, calling someone a racist and then not having the guts to answer the real questions when posed to you.
You might have a chance at scrabble considering the boring life you lead but you would have no chance in the ring. But then again, you don't have the guts to get in the ring, now do you selective racist Bob. Cat will have my telephone number if you ever grow a pair.
P.S.: How about those lower college academic entry standards for blacks. Not racist?
10:45 AM Today
Look: I am sure you are not that bad a guy. I have heard your opinion. Let's go on with our lives.
11:57 AM Today
Typical response from a typical selective, gutless racist. In closing, I will give you a little helpful piece of advice which might help your warped, brainwashed mind. Racism is defined as condemning a total race of people based totally on the color of their skin without provocation or justification. I did not do that. I just pointed out that the vast majority of blacks in this country are inferior to any other race intellectually which is TOTALLY supported by the FACTS at every level of education in this country including colleges where they have to make allowances so that the blacks can get in. Lack of an I-Q leads to irresponsible, moronic actions that we see everyday primarily out of black athletes and others in this country. These are FACTS and I was not condemning them because of the color of their skin.
P.S.: I sure wish you would grow a pair and get into that ring. Alot of P-1's would love to see it. The offer is always open.
Very Good Times.
And, no, I don't know why I take the time to do that.
