Incredibly Stupid People who Won't RTFM and blame you

I don't usually disparage readers. And I don't usually rant. But I have to do it this time, because this is so CLEARLY too funny to keep contained. I actually got the following e-mail from a "Disgruntled Reader". Who deserves to be totally and accurately quoted.

"Voted down because of grossly inaccurate tags. I
really wish I hadn't read the few paragraphs I
did. It's going to take me a while to get that
image out of my mind.

I don't care at all about putting stuff like this
up, but tag it correctly so I won't stumble across

(Name and E-mail address with held to protect the simple minded idiot from being identified)

Now, You read the Title (Slaughter House Conversations)and that should give you SOME hint as to content. And in the Description it says "Don't read unless you first read Classy Conversions".

In the last Episode of "The Newsroom", Thomas Sadoski engages in a Rant that "I read the directions. Do you know what is on an Iron? Do not use on clothes while wearing them".

Now, there was no "Snuff" depicted in this entry. There was a casual conversation among developing professionals about how to provide a wish. And a conversation about issues covered in depth about Historical Sites talking about English Hangings of the 1500s to the 1700s. It is a boring eavesdrop into a conversation.

But this person is so obviously disturbed that he cannot get the images out of his mind? Ever watch the news coming out of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Malaysia, Pakistan, and Afghanistan? Now there is disturbing images. Or Slums and violence in Mexico, Colombia, and Venezuela?

Well, then, Given that this is a work of Fiction, and based on Character behaviors in My imagination, then I have succeeded in doing what I wanted.
1. I presented a believe able situation with respect to the discussion.
2. I did so in a way that left a clear mental image in the mind of the reader.

So, Don't degrade my mark for your lack of reading the instructions on the package, and for my effectiveness in how I wrote it.
