I confess I was a little disappointed to receive an email like this. Let's just hope it's not a SeaChange fan.

Subject: your lit allusion site sucks
are a fucking idiot. You should be ashamed of yourself for writing such
mindless garbage such as the allusion section on your site---you make
yourself look extremely stupid. I'm only in high school and by your writing
it is clear that I have a much better education and a deeper mind than you.
That is pitiful. Statements like "I think Buddhism is groovy as a religion,
but I think politics sucks." are more reminiscent of a 6th grade essay than
an adult analysis of the allusions in a T.V. show. If Tolkien bores you to
tears, I would hate to see you trying to read any classical literature--like
the kind required for 10th grade english courses in high school. The Hobbit
is not a part of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and The Fellowship of the
Ring is the first book of that trilogy. If you insist on being ignorant,
then don't write on subjects which you know nothing about.
