The thing that is so funny is people are offended so much day-to-day, but she actually thought it was worth her time to pursue a complaint

By all means, let some of it roll. Life is too short.

I just clicked on the link to read the article and a big ad for new chocolate covered Chex mixed was on it. I thought that was pretty funny on an article about obesity.

I bought some software, and sent a private email to the company that produced it, telling them of the various problems that it had. They sent me an email back saying they were considering suing me for libel!

Re: Life Imitates Art

Great marketing plan. Sell a defective product then sue your customers if they complain! I guess they aren't looking for repeat business.

this sounds like one of those bits where you yada-yada'ed over part of the story. You wouldn’t have threatened to sick a rabid beaver on bill gates in an email?

Don't hold back. Tell us the whole truth. Did you threaten to have a goat poop in their kayaks? Were threats invloving beavers involved?
