I received the following email Thursday morning. I’ve been on the fence about sharing it or responding to it. But I think it is best to be open. So here it is, unedited, along with a public response from myself. I apologize for the language.
“Hey Pervert! What the fuck is this thing? The ValleyScott Blog?!?!?!? Who the hell do you think you are? Pushing your stupid perverted opinions onto the world. Trying to make you and all your slutty whores and pervert degenerates look good. You can’t clean up slime like you and these people you write about. You’re all fucking trash. You all should be locked up in prison. Men like you should be castrated. And the women should all have the vaginas sewn shut. Or maybe we should just stone the whole lot of you like they did in the ancient times.
And now you want people to pay you to write your crap??? Why the fuck would anyone want to pay you? I see that you only found one loser who is willing to. What is wrong with him? A bigger loser and pervert than you are. You just want some more money so you can hire another slut since you can’t see your “unicorn”!!! Fucking unicorn?!?! What kind of stupid shit drugs do you people all take? And people like your writing? That Sabrina chick can’t even put a proper sentence together. The whole lot of you are all going to hell. And that’s after you all die of AIDS. Which you all fucking deserve!!!! HAHAHA!!!!! God will have HIS Righteous vengeance on all of you pathetic sinful perverts and sluts. Whores and whore lovers.
A Righteous Man”
I again wish to apologize for the language and content of this letter. Obviously, the writer is not a fan. This was sent to my email anonymously. He certainly wants to express his opinion, but doesn’t want his name attached (probably worried that I will post it).
As you might imagine this letter made me terribly angry. It was an attack on me, on my dear friend Sabrina, my readers & supporters, and on my community as a whole. Part of me wanted to keep this anger to myself. To just send this hateful note to the trash folder and forget about it. It is often said on the Internet, “Don’t feed the trolls”. But one of the things that I desire most out of my blog is for it to be honest and open. And so I decided to share.
I could go point-by-point through this letter and write a rebuttal to each incorrect and vile statement. But I hardly think that is necessary. And it would likely just rile up more anger in my heart. And that is not the emotion I desire to feel (In fact, I want to pity this poor man). But I do want to address a few points.
Yes, I am a sinner. I have a strong Christian upbringing. I actually go to church. It is an important part of my life. Does that make me a hypocrite. Certainly. But an honest one. More so than the author of this letter, who would use his own brand of religion as a weapon of hate. That is not what Jesus taught.
I also want to say, that in no way do I think any of my readers are “fucking trash”. In fact, I hold you all in high regard. We all know there are some bad apples in our community. I doubt those people take the time to read a blog like mine. No. My readers are probably among the best this community has to offer. At least, that is my hope. Lol. I know some of you, and you are wonderful people.
To my dear friend Sabrina: It angers me most that he brought your name into this. I know you are tough and don’t let insults get to you. But I cannot stand people saying hurtful lies about people I care about. You are a shining light and represent the very best of our community. OF any community.
As for my asking for financial support for my blog, it is something that I do with much apprehension. I don’t like asking for money. But I do want to improve my product. I don’t need money for sex. But I do need it so I can travel and meet with interesting people and bring you their stories. I do need money so I can get my own domain name and make this into a real website. I do need support so that I can be a part of the events that will shape our community. So far, I have only one supporter. But I am not discouraged. More will come.
More important is the real support I receive from all of the positive comments people give me here and on social media. Your responses build me up and drive me to want to deliver the best to you. I thank you for all that you do.
Our community is a far better one than the man who wrote that letter will ever understand. That is too bad.
