This one’s cute. You’ve got to read what Moby did.
Coming up with a fresh way of hitting back at abusive emailers, Moby not only changed his personal email address after it was published on the internet and he began receiving hate emails, now everyone who emails his old address would receive a message telling them they’ve been automatically enrolled in his fan club.
The automated message reads:
“Thanks for your interest in Moby! As a Moby fan you have been automatically registered in the Moby Fan Club! As a member of the Moby Fan Club you will be kept updated with all of the latest news about Moby!”
Moby said “Ironically enough, some people who’ve sent me hate mail have been very upset at the thought of being part of the ‘Moby Fan Club,’ and they’ve asked us not to write to them. That’s funny, right? It’s amusing and ironic to me that someone who thinks it’s appropriate to send hate mail to a complete stranger would get offended by being automatically enrolled in that person’s fan club. Ah well.”
