  1. Randy, I cannot decide whether to laugh or cry over this ignorant blackmailer. Just when I think the world has gone absolutely crazy….I realize it is possible to be even crazier.

  2. Of course a response to this preposterous blackmail could include the comment that you couldn’t possibly give a positive review until all the misspellings and grammatical errors were corrected because otherwise you would really need to report them to the Editorial Police!

  3. So… should we expect some porn soon?
    I received a call yesterday from someone claiming they were from Visa & Mastercard & they were offering to pay off any credit card debt I had! (Covid relief of course.)
    What a world!!

  4. Well, as long as he talk right english you better have do what he’d said!!
