I’ve been on the receiving end of a few of these emails myself, one of which I shared yesterday. All about the DOOOOM!!!!1!!!eleventy!! that is about to rain down upon you. About how everyone did/will/may abandon you. (It’s like a choose your own adventure book, only with Bill as the narrator and only one possible plot direction.)
That is, unless you do what he wants you to do. Give him what he wants.
I don’t know about you, but a reasonable person might think that there is more than a whiff of extortion in a letter like that.
And because he will whine and complain about how OLD this is, just what does it say about a person who did this barely two months ago as well as several years ago?
