So Melissa and I have a Red and white Boston Terrirer for sale on ksl.com. The breed is AKC certified and registered, and completely legit. Every now and again we get an email from an anonymous user who has feces for brains and gets all ranty on us. It is disturbing, but mostly for the fact that the person comes across as a uneducated zealot, bent on their own rhetoric and enjoying the luxury the anonymity of the internet allows.
I am adding the email, Melissa forwarded it to me just a few minutes ago. All I can think of when I read it is what were you thinking? Some folks just cant get that brain-keyboard thing mastered. And so I believe I will continue to read this kind of internet spew for many years to come. Sigh...
