That's a mouthful...As a number of you may have noticed, we have a new “Submissions” form, which sends your submissions for article ideas to the authors of this site in a way that sticks with the actual intent, rather than becoming a rogue discussion thread.

While we’ve gotten some good submissions (which have been expanded into articles – or referenced in new articles), the expected issues with ‘hate mail’ of course crop up, since there is less accountability.  This is, of course, always a danger in granting even slight anonymity here on the ‘net.

I have to say, though, that our most recent comment from Ms. Parker Tressa Ellis certainly takes the cake. (Read below the fold for more, realizing that Ms. Armchair Ellis uses some language that would likely be condemned by the ODM’s with which she likely finds validation …)

BOY, as my daddy would call you after he took your sorry ass to the wood shed -teach you what the fear of God is. Myself , a clinical therapist would not put up w/your silly agrandized self. .I would refer you to my worst competator. Too bad I don”t have one. being of the opinion Osama Bin Laden has no thang above/below NEWS for you., boy2 babe. What’s your excuse for such ill- behaved actions. ? What does your mama think about your showing your ass?I Let me guess you breast fed ’til you were age 9?

BEFORE YOU HEAR VOICES TELLING YOU-YOU ARE GOD! (oops almost called you sir!)Now , myself being raised as Christian, I am telling you every demon in “plethoria “be their name -has a conterfeit for anything seemingly rightous. If JESUS walked the earth today do you think he would take fellowship w/your sorry ass? Don’t think he’d keep company w /mine either. I am humble in beleiving that.. p.s . I’m serious about those meds. My sympathy to your spouse – should you have one,2,3,4…?

I’m not even sure where to start. Speechless is probably where I would begin…
All I can say, is, if you’re in the Seattle area and in need of a clinical therapist, perhaps Ms. Ellis isn’t the person to visit…

Was that was is known as a “chain-of-consciousness” thread? Of course with the net anyone can write anything and take on any persona that they want which is not anywhere near the truth. Perhaps RA is jerking your chain or perhaps one of Rick’s alter egos?

Now I’m going to have to go make me a Nilla Waifer and peanut butter cookie.

John – I’ve done a little detective work on this one, and unless RA or Mr. Frueh are having a latte in Seattle right now, Ms. Ellis (who seems to have a legit email address, which I didn’t publish) seems to be the real deal…

Who is she talking to and what is she talking about?

I would assume you would never believe I would even joke like that. :cool:

I only say “crap” when I refer to nc’s evangelistic method!

” I wana melt in to your arms and we’ll make this world go away”

But it is like some of the stuff I get from emergent types now and again on my blog….

Hey, does this mean you are an ODM??

This explains a lot about why Driscoll’s job of ministering in Seattle can be so difficult. ;-)

Setting aside the detective work that Sherlock Lyons did …. ;-)

What does it say about those who oppose this site that it’s very believable that something this so far over the top is for real?
