: all this person wanted to do was forward a very personal agenda, and continue to ignore or totally twist anything I said in response.
Ah! Here is where I believe you made your mistake. You believed this idiot wanted to have a discussion and responded to him. It has been my experience that a response only encourages the fools.
:I continued to get emails after I requested that he quit writing me, and they were very inflammatory. I'm afraid I DID lose my temper, eventually, and decide the person was a complete idiot, and told him so. There could be no other excuse for such deliberate obtuseness. I had to block all incoming email from him.
It has also been my experience that blocking emails only makes them believe that they have won. It is much more frustrating for them if you continue to receive their emails, but make ample use of your delete button and don't reply. Then they do not know whether or not you've read their piece, and worse yet, why you haven't replied. Let them stew in their own frustrations.
Have a wonderful day walking peacefully along Vita's fabled riverbank (but I must disagree with her about the salmon!)
