Received a rather rude message, looking for advice on how to trudge through the eternal darkness...
The message was as follows: (NSFW language)
"You seem like a dumbass pretentious little fucking cunt. Go rethink your life."
I have so many questions. Am a dumb ass? Am I a cunt? Am I pretentious? I would like to think no, but who am I to say? Mostly I wonder if this message warrants a response. Should I point out that, while I May possibly be a "dumbass pretentious little fucking cunt", I am at the very least not the person sending this kind of message to someone seemingly without cause. I am also left wondering if it is my life that needs rethinking.
In these cases, I am usually quick to ignore these kinds of things and move on, because you can't really protect your own integrity against someone who consciously decided that their first interaction with you would be to call you a "cunt", but as you can imagine, something about being called that just doesn't sit right with me.
So, should I amass letters of recommendation as proof of my perfectly good noncunty standing? Should I send him off a list of personal character references? Should I, as an American, refrain from commenting on anything having to do with British affairs or the differences between America and the UK, as this appears to possibly have been what provoked my dear letter writer in to action?
Should I ignore it and move on?
P.S. Sorry for the language. Moderators, feel free to moderate.
P.P.S I would like to make it very clear that this did not happen on Icrontic!
