Referring to Jim Jones, he states, “I thought he might possibly be an Englishman and not an American as he appeared to be passing himself off as.” This statement means the author of the email has been in the physical presence of “Jim Jones” to state that he “appeared“.
“I, without hesitation, forgive your disparagement and put-downs concerning the correct and only explanation…” In the post that contained the ramblings of “firstname.lastname@example.org”, my commentary was that it was just a lengthy cut/paste of someone else’s work, and I wasn’t going to waste my time reading the nonsense that had absolutely nothing to do with this case. It was a distraction.
“My thesis is not for the feint-hearted or for those who lack the time to read and re-read:or are not inquisitive enough to pursue their own counter-research and verification before appending rebuttals.” I don’t care to be told what to do with my time. My email is “email@example.com”. I never gave any “rebuttals” on the copy/pasted email from firstname.lastname@example.org, had I, I would have done my own research.
“The novelization of true-crime reporting has done no favors and has short-changed the true connoisseur.” I find it interesting that this person, claiming to have written this novel, would speak of it not doing any favors and short-changing the true connoisseur. Speaking of “favors“, this email claims to be from the UK, where they would write this word as “favours“. If the author of this email wanted to make his writings believable, he should have done his own research and verification before hitting send.
“I do wonder why you would post anything on your webpage without reading it? Anyway, never-mind. (But next time be more circumspect because uninspected content could possibly implicate you in a felony. Ha ha ha.)” Wonder no more… I skimmed it, and it was copy/pasted nonsense. Please, pray tell, what “uninspected content could possibly implicate [me] in a felony”?
“If you furnish me with an email address…” If I furnish him wih an email address? How did he send this in the first place?
“This is a dispassionate and impartial inquiry into a particular set of serial killings…” This is interesting, email@example.com/fieldnotes/Jim Jones all use this exact phrasing. So is the blog written by Michael Dougherty or is it written by someone else?
“(COPYRIGHT (C) )” Copyright of whom? If it was a copyright of “Erwin Makinde”, then that would have been included in the parenthesis.
