3. You can't fix stupid. Best way to deal with this is hit the DELETE button, and block the sender

if you get too much of this stuff.

Anytime I see !!!!!!!!!!! and RUN-ON SENTENCES IN ALL CAPS ACCOMPANIED BY SCREWED UP PAGE BREAKS AND POOR PUNCTUATION, I realize that there's no point in confronting this sort of beast.

Put it this way: You're an intelligent person. Your time is surely worth something. Wouldn't you rather be using that time to communicate with like-minded people, or do something to help your family or community, or do something fun, rather than spending it wrestling with a pig?

You know what George Bernard Shaw said about wrestling with a pig, after all: I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.
