My First 'Hate' Email: A 'Chiropractic Doctor' Writes

Yesterday I received my first "hate" email.

Subject: nahh nahh nahh nahh nahh nahh!

Jack-Off, uh, excuse me, Jack of Kent. Simon has to pay, Simon has to pay, na na na na nahh.

Jack, you remember me? You know? The chiropractic doctor who trolled the skeptics site? The one who takes care of 500 pv/week, including MD's?

I told ya then that Simon would be found libel, you Brit Twit across the watery pit!

Suck it up you dick head barrister!



Now that last thing is a serious thing to say to any solicitor.

Indeed, many would even regard "dick head barrister" as a tautology...

I know you don't have to be qualified to be a Chiropractor, but surely there is a minimum age requirement?

Zeno said...

You lucky bastard, Jack!

Wear your badge of honour with pride.

Carmenego said...

Wow that's cold. I can't believe he called you a barrister.

I think I love you a little, Mr. of Kent.

No death threats? No dark musings on how you can sleep at night or rumblings about how karma will get you?

OK for a first one but a bit paltry on the invective and ill-wishing.

You might have been crushed by the weight of well-turned and honed criticisms but as these miss the mark both for basic literacy or accuracy...

WV is vingunlo - which reminds me that A. McCall-Smith described Funagalo as a language for giving orders. Maybe demi-literate, ill-wishing emails are written in vingunlo?

"Dick head lawyer" doesn't have quite the same ring. I might move to England.

If he sees 500 "patients" per week, and works 10 hour days, that's a patient every six minutes. What a man!

Ramel said...

Meh its a start, you don't join the big league until you get one in all caps with random colour changes and no paragraphs.

@Geek Godess: He claims to take care of 500 patients a week, for all we know he has a part time job in a hospital kitchen.

An alarming display of anatomical ignorance in one who calls himself "doctor"...

Eloquent

If a homeopath sent you hate mail would it be so diluted that all the insults were missing?

Rogue Medic said...

At least he/she didn't threaten you with chiropractic treatment. That would be over the top.

Chris Kavanagh said...

One more quote to add to the selection at the side there!

Is this the Jacklash?

Who is this lily-livered poltroon? They are so spineless I'll swear they have no vertebrae at all.

A colleague must have pulverised them.

Nigel said...

This is an entirely rational and sober repost to all your mischief. I find the "nahh nahh nahh" point both very coherent & devastating.
You will scoff but an antidote to this is to print out the original "nahh" and dilute it in distilled water 1 million times & drink. If you do this you will live, otherwise I don't think there is much hope for you.

Surely the barrister comment merits a trip to the libel courts.

elainemarie said...

And what's with the apostrophe in "MD's" ?

Jonathan Hearsey said...

Jack,

That's pathetic - I'm getting a few of those a week at the moment - and I've hardly said anything of value!

'Suck it up' - do people really speak like that? It's like watching an episode of 'Wired' - all he needs to add is something about 'popping a few caps in yo ass' then he'll be right on task!

Keep up the good work - the bar needs propping up!!!

This email wasn't by any chance from a "Dr Mike", was it?

WoodsieGirl said...

Wow. The "nahh nahh nahh nahh nahh nahh" was devastating enough, but then he lobs in the "barrister" bomb...

Surely that's pretty solid grounds for a libel case? ;)

SVETLANA PERTSOVICH said...

And why is this chap so angry as a wicked dog? ;) It seems he lusts Singh's money! But Singh doesn't give... :P
And will not give!!! Nah!!! :P

Coincidentally, your first hate e-mail is also the most intelligent thing ever written by a chiropracter.

Dr Aust said...

Since your chiropractic commentator seems to come from across the pond in the Great Land of Starbucks, are you sure he was not trying to insult you by likening you to a barista, but got the spelling wrong?

I wonder if the possibility of such a spelling confusion could form a basis for a defence to a defamation action in the English courts? Although accusing someone of working in Starbucks might be taken as an insult in the US, in Italy where the word barista originates it denotes a bartender, which of course is a noble and ancient profession. So likening you to one of them - as opposed to a "barrister" - could presumably be argued to be incapable of carrying a defamatory meaning.

Zeno said...

In that case, mine's a large cappuccino.

If plagiarism by the International Chiropractors Association (which the organization has not admitted to yet) is of interest, see my response to the post on the ScienceBlog at http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/blog/7769-bca-plethora-evidence-fallon-paper-22760.html
