Subject: Dear Missus Bojangles:

Dear Missus Bojangles, I want you to know that via my short time @, I found your behavior and personality to be quite detestable–but more importantly, I wanted to give you my personal url so you can read my story about my two weeks there when I publish it on my website:

The only reason your website is still around is because it is being propped up by that Corporate Giant XXX. Let’s not beat around the bush. If it were a private venture, your dotcom would have long ago sunk like the hideous ballast it is. You and your corporation do not know more about the net than I do, and what’s more, my website kicks your website’s ass.

Now, let me get to that story . . . “Missus Bojangles was . . . ” (I’m reaching for the thesaurus to find synonyms for the word ‘troll’) . . . Come to think of it, I will publish this very letter as a prelude to my story tentatively titled “Fear and Loathing at Corporate,” and you can just wait for the rest.
