    don't you agree that the only good moslem is a dead moslem?
    And how the hell did the USA allow so many of them across the border? Why do we worry about illegal Mexicans when we have so many illegal Moslems in the US?

    Doesn't everyone want to wake-up, check their e-mail and find this? I ask myself; why me?

      Just ignore that trash talk.  It's the voice of ignorance. 

      Why you?  Well because you were there, that's why.

    I ask myself, why did Harvey Stelman have to make three threads about it?

      Seems like he wanted a reaction and that's exactly what the sender got.

    Agreed on both counts, the email was not something I would want to receive, but I think I would have just deleted it!

    I read this earlier, and I tried to find a way that I could report this user. I'm sorry that happened to you.

    Harvey, I, too am sorry this happened to you.  I'm a new Hubber and this is only the second Forum I read.  I truly expected Hubbers to a little more intelligent and intellectual than to spout such hate-mongering, vicious nonsense as that.  By the way, I'm Methodist, not Muslem, so my reaction is not motivated by my personal religous views.  My reaction is motivated by a deep sense of embarassment for and disappointment in the sender of that hateful message.

    I am very sorry you received such an emaill, I received one not too long ago bashing my beliefs and telling me I was a nut or insaine and needed help because I believed in life after death and the paranormal and calling me a "dark person" because I believe in wicca and God working as one..

    Some people just get off on harassing and hating others, I just deleted it because when I searched for this person, they were not a user and did not come up as one.

      Ah B,C. I think I am in aw. Please tell me you have a hub about that? I am going to check. I love the great stong people I am finding here. I know sooner or later they will bash me too. I am not looking forward to it. Going to read your hubs now. My friend got bashed on his second hub, poor thing took it down and rewrote, now it has no feeling. Time heals all bashings however.

    Actually, rather than wonder why we have fringe elements on HP, I wonder how we manage to have so few.  With something like, what, 130,000 + Hubbers, we get a whole handful of hardcore headcases?  Not all that bad...in my book.

    Just sayin'....big_smile

      I always do. You never know what interesting things may be coming your way. How you handle it after that is, of course, different smile

    Ignore it Harvey! I've had awful requests and emails as well, so I just report them and move on.

    I want to thank everyone that was understanding of my dilema. I opened it because this was the first request I received, it seemed to be an honor. I posted it all over because I wanted anyone as innocent to this as me should be aware.

    Yet I am chastized by many for trying to help. I'm sorry if I offended anyone.

      Let it go and move on Harvey.

      Look at it from our point of view.

      One thread, I'd understand. But you yourself were disgusted (and rightly so) so why publish it three times? You just gave the guy a free PR blitz.
