Jake, I didn't *steal* your email address and I didn't deliberately lie,
although I see that your name was in my contacts list, apparently because
you sent email to the Noisebridge list that I was once subscribed to. 
Anyway, have you ever thought about being a little more reasonable about
reporting people on a first offense?  I mean come on - you were so harmed by
getting one email from me that you try to ruin my business?  That seems a
little extreme to me.  Anyway, sorry for causing you all the grief.

       Don, you lie.  You stole my email address off the noisebridge
       mailing list.  This is a foolish thing to do because now you
       have over a hundred hackers pissed off at you.

       Even if you got my email address on a handwritten note after we
       met and shook hands, I never asked you to be spammed by your
       marketing campaign.

       Anyway, i already reported you to godaddy, gmail (you are using
       their mail server) and youtube.

       stop what you're doing.  i've seen it all before, it's not okay.

             Jake, I got your email from when we corresponded
             about things at
             Noisebridge.   I am sorry if I offended you by
             sending you an email that I
             assumed you would have an interest in as another
             maker.  But it does seem a
             little extreme in reporting me for one email.  I am
             just one person trying
             to make a go of something I worked years to create. 
             Everyone else who
             replied was very positive and glad that I informed
             them of my new creation.
             I hope that you reconsider your fairly drastic
             action for what I think was a
             pretty innocuous email that included information on
             how to avoid getting
             further emails.

                   hey Don,

                   I don't like spam and i'm reporting you to
             youtube, godaddy, and
                   any other service provider i find you
             connected with.

                   where did you get my email address?   I didn't
             ask for this
                   contact from you and neither did any of the
             other people you've
                   sent it to.  This is disrespectful and will
             not get you
                   customers, but haters instead.

                   Stop your evil ways before it's too late.
              Nobody likes a
                   spammer or their products.
