Only In Israel

Oooh.. Love in my Inbox.

I'm used to getting "love" letters regularly, in fact in the last week I've been in the army, my Inbox was filled with more hatemail than I've ever seen (including someone who was kind enough to subscribe me to quite a few nasty porn spammers, the politest of which was titled "Fist goes WHERE????") .
One of those messages shines above the other, you see it was written by someone in the UK who works for the Coventry city council, and used their mail account to supply me with the following feedback.
your sites a disgrace,you pro israeli facist scum bags.

It must be sad living in Britain and writing hate mail to an Israeli more fluent than you in your own language (I am aware of my spelling problems, but English isn't my first, or second language, I think I'm allowed a certain quota of errors). Let me try and help you a bit.
I think what you meant was "Your site is a disgrace, you pro-Israeli fascist scumbag."
I wonder how the city council keeps employing you. The message continues with what appears as an automatic script.
This e-mail and any files transmitted with it are confidential and are intended solely for the use of the addressee. If you have received this e-mail in error, you are requested to contact the sender immediately, and not to disclose or make use of this information.

Does it LOOK like I signed up to the "send me hatemail now" newsletter? Newsflash, don't send hatemail to blog owners and expect it to remain confidential.

All e-mails are monitored by Coventry City Council IT Security, using Star Filtering Services.

Well, Coventry city council, I'd advise you to change your filtering service. Or, possibly, add a spell checking one.
And to the idiot who mailed me this one, just so you know, I've contacted Coventry City Council to let them know how their bandwidth is used.
