the perils of blogging – friends finding out (5)

This is the continuation of the fourth part, and is the last.

So I threw him some insults in my last mail, because I didn’t feel like it was justified for him to simply say stupid things like I’m a lousy professional just because he didn’t like what he read in my blog. I was at the verge of asking him to just fuck off and leave me alone… but kept my shit together anyway… until I read his next reply:

the perils of blogging – friends finding out (4)

This is the continuation of the third part.

I actually was trying to pull his leg in my last reply, you know, as we always do amongst our group members. Perhaps I also did that as an experiment to check if he was still trying to fit in, if you can remember what he said in the first few posts. The bad news was, he didn’t take it quite well…

This is the continuation of the second part.

I actually didn’t lose my shit in the last reply. I was just fed up with Darth Apeshit trying to be emo and stuff, which in my opinion, was bordering the gay territory and being a drag. So I said what had to be said.

Anyway, I didn’t see any mail from him for the next 1 day, which I thought he probably had sulked enough or committed suicide. But he was very much alive. Check out his reply and the correspondence that followed after the jump…

This is the continuation of the first part.

My friend Darth Apeshit went really apeshit after reading Alvin’s flippant email reply. He immediately made 2 email replies, first one with everyone in copy, the second only to me.

the perils of blogging – friends finding out (1)

I have been asked countless of times before by a lot of people – Have I ever been in trouble for writing so many things about the people I know in my blog?

Well, the answer is – Fuck yeah. Many times. Among the biggest one, was this incident when an oversea friend found out about my blog from his colleagues (apparently, my blog’s quite popular), only to realize that I had written many stories about him in my blog… and he went ballistic about it. He immediately sent an email to castigate me, and copied many other friends in the process, which kind of blew the matter out of proportion many times over. A war of emails ensued and our friendship was put to test right then.

I felt inclined to share the emails between the two of us, with all of you here, just so that you people get to experience what I experienced first hand – when a friend finds out about the things you wrote about him in your blog.

Because it’s hard for me to cram all the email transcripts into one single posting, I will break the shit up into several parts for convenience’s sake – and you guys can let me know your thoughts at the end of the series.

The emails are reproduced verbatim, except for the involved character’s name – which I’m going to replace with ‘Darth Apeshit’ to mask his true identity (but you guys can go ahead to figure out which are the corresponding entries I wrote about him… it’s quite easy, really). Also, please excuse our poor command of language, for we are uneducated and stuff. First part of the email transcripts after jump.
