Random Acts of Verbal Violence

I checked my e-mail after a shower tonight and got excited when I saw that I received something through the contact form on this blog. Then I saw what it was:

For the sake of my sanity, I'm going to assume that this was a random act. Readers are people who are interested in learning, thinking, growing, imagining. I would like to believe that they are more cultured and open-minded than the type of person who takes time out of his day to dig through a blogger's website for the bot-proofed contact form, just to pull something this asinine. The maliciousness and verbal ineptitude involved is astounding. Misogyny and racism expressed in a short series of mono- and bisyllabic words — bravo.

I suppose that this was a bit of a rant, but it irks me to see something designed to facilitate communication with authors and readers abused in such a fashion. Off to work off the irritation with some writing now. Have a good night, dear friends.
