Are you okay? I've never seen you so bitter and nasty before...I really
don't understand why all the venom toward someone who posted a Happy Holiday
message. I really don't think it's fair to lump Peter's post in with
"idiots" that post spam. It was a simple, well intentioned greeting, not the
mean spirited offensive "joke" you seem to think it is.
Are you having a bad time? The nastiness seems very out of character for
you. I hope you're okay.
