It's people, kid, they just ain't got no sense.

February/2005: PeeJ/Crazy People - I've always been a fairly anti-social person. I don't think there's been any point in my life where I've had more than two concurrent, good friends in the immediate vicinity of Portland. There's just usually something about a specific person that makes them in my mind, unhinged. Or boring. Or trite. I've covered this stuff at length on other parts of my blog, I'm sure. I had thought that perhaps humanity didn't get more mentally unhinged.

But hey, PeeJ came along and now I'm continually proven wrong on that thought of days gone by.

It's always an odd experience when someone who is well-written sends me an email that makes me wonder exactly where their brain went. Under the bed? Behind the sofa? I doubt they even have an idea of where to start looking for their lost sanity, tossed out with so many joints and nausea beverages. Somewhere in their lives, these otherwise normal people simply lost their minds. No, I'm not talking about the Pervs we post. They're males and no depth of depravity in a male can surprise me.

Today, I got the perfect example of my bemusement and bewilderment at humanity in email. At first, I understood the woman's email. It made sense. Then I checked into it and the entire text now just blows my mind.

Here's the email, I withheld her name because really, she has enough problems with her life and "delusional emailing" isn't really a felony yet.

To Whom it May Concern:

I am writing in regard to my fiancÚ Kevin Michael Boedeker on your site.

First off.. as his significant other for 4 years.. yes he was with me at the time of this bullshit 'bust' you call.. and I AM THE ONE THAT UPDATES HIS PROFILES SINCE HE NEVER DOES.. At the time of this bust he was 22.. his birthday is in 1981.. so I fail to see how he could lie about being 22 and you saying his profile says 24.. unless you checked his profile (before Kev changed his email) was no explanation / wasted words. AND I AM THE ONE IN THE PICTURE AND CAN VALIDATE MY AGE OF 23 YEARS OLD NOW.. at the time of the picture I was 19; yes, I am older than I look I also do not act or sound my age at 4'11, 98 lbs.. asian descent.

Unless this chick was asian, I can guarantee you that Kevin had no designs of intimacy with her as he has been highly focused on me and our future. Kevin and I have a wonderful 2 year old daughter as well and since his career takes him out of the state, he doesn't have much time for play on the sly and when he does have the time.. he spends it with his family and friends.

I ask that you remove this file. Kevin has shown me the same log and there are just some things that ARE NOT present in the log you present to the online world. Kevin is a sweetie and granted he is mistrusting of the world.. he does sometimes take chances and talks to people who hold the same interests online as him as there are online programs / games that are multi-player games.

Kevin is highly anti-social outside of his family and friends but will game in Dark Age of Camelot, Neverwinter Nights, games by Blizzard and Magick Online. He does not deserve to have his name dragged thru the mud for something he was innocent of.

Yes he shouldn't have talked to her but when one is online and someone messages.. isn't it just courteous to reply back? It's only online and there is always the Block option.. or going Invisible and ignoring anything from the annoyance. I've known Kev for awhile and what's posted on that site is false. So I implore you that his file be removed. The harassment has got to stop as his email is flooded to the point where he had to get a new one and his residence had to change their number.. it's too bad there's no way to change a house's street address. Thank you for your time.


Now, I get a lot of emails like this. I don't hate these people, receiving these emails is usually a depressing experience. You have someone so blinded by familiarity or "love" that they swallow the biggest bullshit from people who are practiced manipulators. Usually I get these, read them, logically refute them and hope some shining beacon of reality comes through their window one morning and wakes them up to "the land that isn't delusional."

Think about it. These people have invested time and energy into these other blobs of DNA who turn out to be scum. You have to feel for them. Back after World War 2, a common sentiment among German females when confronted with their husband's war-time atrocities was complete and utter denial. These broken, little people with their crushed worlds rejecting reality. We get one life. On average, sixty to seventy years. Not long. To suddenly wake up one day and find that so many years with a person was a lie has to be a bitter pill. Like I said, you have to feel for them.

Except, well, not all of them. And not this woman.

She emails me a "followup email" before I can respond to her:
I apologize for this addition but I sometimes get so upset that I just click 'send' without re-reading email enough.. As of January 29, 2004 (I read Kev's 'Right of Reply').. Kev was 23 and sometimes I have to remind him his age. After one hits the age of 21.. the years seem to blur and a lot of my friends will agree do need reminding sometimes. Sorry again ^.^

After the followup, I checked into her boyfriend's file. After doing so, I realized that she must be literally insane. At first glance, I looked at her with pity. Mentally logged her in with so many others who have emailed similar sentences of denial. Then I read the boyfriends file. And his ROR. And realized that he was one of the guys who showed up at the WDIV Detroit Group Media Bust. Yes, went to the door. To meet what he thought was a teen. Oh, did I mention the ROR? Yes, I did. So did she. She read the ROR. Once I read the ROR, I wondered exactly where her brain went and if the weather was nice there. Why?

Well, read his f'n ROR.

Here, I'll quote a few portions for the few of you whom are too lazy to click anything.

From this guy's ROR:
first, as stated in the commentary by the person that was placing themselves in the young girl's shoes, I should of told them that I am too old to converse with her and that she should use her time better.. But I did not do that. In fact I, for reasons I hope to learn more about from a professional counselor, I took our conversation to levels that even I knew were very out of line and immature of a person of my age. I even went to the home and was met with a crew and taped being at the home.

Yeah. You know what that means. He went to have sex with what he thought was a little kid.

From this guy's ROR:
I am at a loss of words for the trouble I brought onto myself. I sincerely apologize to anyone and all who read my conversation because it gives so many people a very valid reason to hate me and that bothers me... but something like that isn't worthy of pity because if I had actually been there to be with the person I was led to believe was an underage girl, the lasting effects of my appearance would of changed her life forever, and for the worst. Of this I am certain.

The above bolded portions make this one of the best ROR's ever written by someone we've posted. So many of them try to bullshit, lie... rationalize what they wanted to do. This guy owned right up to it. It's a stellar ROR, and I honestly --up until the point his fucking girlfriend emailed me-- believed that there was some sincerity to it. A lot of terrible things are said about me, that I'm heartless... that we just laugh at the ROR's, but the truth is far different. The ROR is very important. It's the person's chance to step up and take responsibility. Their chance to, after the cold water of being posted, speak up and perhaps start a new productive stage of their lives. Few actually take full advantage of the feature because so few care about what they tried to do more than what is being done to them due to what they tried to do. They sit in self-pity and whine to us, which only infuriates people more. However, I want to see ROR's like this guys, where they take self-ownership with their issues. Hell, I usually vote "lighter" than most of the community in the ROR polls. Regardless, back to quoting from his ROR...

From this guy's ROR:
Thank you for your time reading this and I hope the best to you all. I have learned a very valuable lesson from all of this and it is a lesson, I feel, could not of been learned as well any other way. Believe me. Its in there.

Yeah. One of the best ROR's we've posted.

Now... that ROR makes the girlfriend's email insane. Literally. She goes on and rails about her boyfriend's "innocence" and how the information posted is "false"... AFTER READING HIS ROR WHERE HE ADMITS HE WOULD HAVE AFFLICTED TRAUMA UPON AN ACTUAL UNDERAGE FEMALE HAD THERE BEEN ONE!!! Hello! HELLO! HOLA! TOROVA! HALLO! KUZU ZANGPO! ZDRAVO! TANISI! HELLOOOOOOOOOOO! Hello?

Hello humanity, stop the merry-go-round of life, for this shit is getting too insane.

How do you read that Right of Reply, no matter how much you may love someone and conclude that he is innocent! He admitted to everything! He's on tape! He was one of the most honest ROR's we've posted! And there you sit, with your "He couldn't have hit on her because she wasn't ASIAN!" with the stupid idea that unthinking cro-magdon sex-obsessed morons give one shit about the flavor of the pussy when their cock is hard. How stupid must you be, how delusional, to read such text and come to such conclusion. It is an insult, a literal insult, to get an email from a person requesting the removal of such a file on the grounds of "innocence" given the fact that the man admitted that he would have ruined a kid's life had the IM name he solicited actually been the target of his unnatural desire. A more overt attack on my intellect could not be mounted, even if a team of illiterate rednecks got together to ask me web-design questions! It is impossible to be more ponderous, more "to the proverbial moon" than the email I received.

Is this the fruit of thousands upon thousands of years of civilization? No person living today has a right to be that dumb. Nobody! For any reason! Yet... her email is actually composed of properly spelled words. She even followed up with an apology over the 1/16th of her bullshit email that she realized was... yes, bullshit. This person obviously thought about the situation for what? A year? A fucking year! A year! OVER A YEAR! And this is the result of such brain-usage? Damnable, if only were I a theist.

I am anti-social. I play online video games such as those mentioned. I really don't like people. I am not out trying to molest little teens. I do not then enlist my girlfriend to write a very illogical email to "whomever it may concern" on my behalf. The fact that there are people out there this stupid is why I don't like people. It's why I play video games. It's why I'm anti-social. Seemingly normal people, driven to delusion and myopia.

Drinking yourself to oblivion, pot, drugs and meandering self-focus, I condemn. Those who practice those fine arts are scum of the truest sort, cowardly and weak-willed.

But how... oh, how I understand why you people do it.
