64. I think they did

Just like everything else in the world, I believe the hatemail has been affected by the rise of social media. We just don’t get as much these days as we used to — why email DU when you can fart your dumb opinions all over Twitter and Facebook?

That’s why I do have special place in my heart for the folks who still take the time to hatemail us directly. It’s like getting a snail mail letter

Aww, man... I was hoping for a Nadine screed. :( demmiblue Jan 2019 #1
