That email thing: An Apology of Sorts
By QBlog in
I get lots of emails from this blog. Believe it or not, I try to answer every single one (even the nasty ones). I don't want it to sound like I get hundreds every day but I do get a few and when you toss in all the other email I get from various jobs, obligations, friends, etc. -- well, you can see how I might get overwhelmed at times.
I'm saying this to say that I'm NOT ignoring your email. I've thought about setting up an auto-responder that says pretty much what I'm saying now but I hate auto-responder emails so I'm trying to avoid that. One problem that I have with email responses is that I really try to think about what I'm saying. I don't want to just say, "Thanks for the email. Have a nice day." I want to actually have something to say when I respond. That requires time and the editor in me also insists that each email is expertly constructed (though that editor is often on long breaks).
All I'm saying is please be patient with me. I may not get back to you for several weeks but I really will try. I have always hated these "apology email" blog posts because I think, "quit telling us you suck at answering emails and just answer the damn things." But, here I am posting this sad little, "Please don't hate me for not responding" post on my blog.
I do have one parting thought about the emails. I get a good number of bogus email addresses from people sending me a message from this site. Such behavior discourages me from answering all my email. There's nothing worse than spending 30 minutes crafting a response to a message only to have it bounce back with an invalid email error. So, if you send me a message, use your real email or if it's a fake one, just tell me in the message. I'll understand. Honest.
Thanks so much.

Do you have anything better to do with your life? Every business from Starbucks to Coca-cola has a negative site...yours just LOOKS professional. You know, pornography sites are "protected by the first ammendment" too, hmmm. Interesting. Get a job, by the way, and attempt to MAKE a difference instead of wasting your time on attempting to defame something that has obviously surpassed YOU.
I see more "Pulitzer Prize" winning material has been posted by some of the pro-AmQuix people. I always wondered why these people, who obviously have the time to take away from their Quixtar business to respond, do not understand that maybe anti-Quixtar people might have some free time as well? Or that we might be very successful in other endeavors? And last but not least, do pro-AmQuix people never take a look for themselves to see if there is anything behind the negative information, or do they always dismiss "negative" opinions because they are negative without ever researching the merits of the argument? If it is true, I would love to talk to these people, because I have a beautiful bridge to sell them in Brooklyn, and don't listen to any "negative" people who say I don't own it or it is not for sale!
Dan and Scott you said you were never posting again and now you are back. You are worse than Protagoras with your half truths. Q-blog is a decent fellow, but I can't say the same for you dmm. Your motto should be "better to be silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt"
