Inbox excerpts

Ceri from Worldwrite is undertaking running training! For people who know her, this will sound funny. I got the begging letter, but you can click on this link to sponsor her.

Paul Marmite writes "Could you imagine the size of the band if we reunited with all personnel, what a racket!!" Quite.

Baden-Württemberg police cadet Anna-Lena requests help with a Masters thesis on happy slapping.* "This may be an uncommon request [not at all uncommon for me - GB], which you receive ... I would be very pleased, since it is hard finding good and level material about „Happy Slapping“. Happy to help with your investigation, officer.

The Google Ad-Sense team says:
"Thank you for your appeal. After receiving your response, we re-reviewed your account data thoroughly. We have reconfirmed that invalid clicks were generated on the ads on your site in violation of our Terms and Conditions and programme policies."
So valid clicks only from now on please, readers, or Anna-Lena might be called into investigate.

Barnaby from London is interested in "how Hunter S. Thompson's Gonzo style has influenced the writing of modern day journalists ... I came across your article on the death of Gonzo at spiked-online, which I found very interesting. I was hoping you might be able to answer a few quick questions via email for research purposes? I am eager to gauge how experts see Gonzo's legacy..."
So I'm an expert?

Ben, also from London, writes:
"Thank you very, very much ... it was extremely kind of you and certainly not something everyone would have done. It’s great to think that people still go out their way to help others and it really and truly made my day & restored my faith in my fellow man!"

Just another busy day in paradise ...


* At the time of writing, Emil Steiner's blog which reports this story proves 'once again that stupidity knows no boarders'. Either this shows the need for proof-reading, or maybe stupidity has never met a temporary, paying guest in its life ...
