Here it is.

There's some weird people out there

Today I got two emails in response to some long forgotten post in the main JOS forum from about a month ago. Both emails were basically elaborate restatements of the answer that I gave in that thread and contained neither any new information, nor any attempt to correct what I said, nor any question requesting an answer. What was the point? Was it somehow just an attempt at self-validation by the sender?

Do other people get such weird emails from lurkers?

Yes, I've gotten a few really weird ones.

I get a few once in a while... it's weird, I won't get any for months and then I'll get 3 in 2 days and then nothing again for months.

I get requests for personal advice. I generally ignore them.

I have never gotten an e-mail in response to a post here.

Maybe because you don't link to your e-mail here. :)

Incidentally, I don't get any e-mail from JOS either.
