We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Obama is scared of Putin and really doesn´t know how to react or bargain with him. He foolishly thought that divulging our nuclear warheads would buy his love, when all he did was scoff at his weakness.
I'm writing to ask for your assistance, since there is no other way that I can see to contact you.
Here's the problem: I commented on one of "Dr Mercury's" articles.
"Doc Mercury" has been emailing me ever since, arguing incessantly. I do not want to hear from him, but he keeps emailing me. Now he is threatening to write a public article about me!
Someone has apparently wired around "Doc Mercury's" On/Off switch, and I cannot get him to go away. I do not respond to his emails, but he keeps sending them anyway. When I tried to respond in your threads, "Doc Mercury" deleted my replies. I have repeatedly used my computer's "Bounce to Sender" feature, but he keeps sending me unwanted emails.
Because I don't respond to his emails, "Doc Mercury" has now threatened to write an article about me, and post it on Maggie's Farm. The guy has a screw loose, and I feel uncomfortable with his incessant pestering. As I said, I do not respond to him. But he keeps emailing me anyway. [I have his emails to me saved, if you want to read them. Just ask.]
In his emails "Doc Mercury" calls me insulting names: "moron", etc. I was always polite, until I stopped responding completely. I never called him names, and I do not like the fact that he is a name-caller who also solicits other readers' name-calling. I have been reading Maggie's Farm for several years, and I have gotten others to read it, too. I am not your enemy!
"Doc Mercury" has egged on readers who appeared hostile to my one comment [which, in total, amounted to about 2 sentences that compared the number of responses his article got, vs the person his article was attacking. That person is a friend of mine.].
"Doc Mercury" never deleted the readers' comments that called me a "moron", a "shill", a "toady", etc. But when I tried to [politely] respond and explain, "Doc Mercury" then deleted the entire thread. I never called those people or "Doc Mercury" any insulting names, and I should point out that your site rules specifically do not permit name-calling. But "Doc Mercury" allowed them to stand, until I objected.
"Doc Mercury" is a guy that I donated money to, following his incessant appeals for medical funds. I reminded him of that, but it did no good. He still emails me, and his attention is completely unwanted. I have tried to get him to go away, without success.
Please do what you can to get this lunatic off my back. I am truly convinced he is unbalanced.
I will keep posting this message until your "Dr Mercury" stops contacting me. He is an unwanted pest. Please make him go away.
