In spite of a rather wide audience – -and particularly in spite of my role as a professional polemicist – – I get very, very few unwelcome emails or tweets. On rare occasions, however, I do. Recently, for instance, I got this email in response to my suggestion of Overstock as an interesting short idea. I think this same guy has written me nettlesome missives in the past, but I make it a habit not to be rattled by anyone with a Yahoo account.
I’ve always had contempt for Overstock, particularly since their CEO seems obsessed with bear-bashing. I just wanted to present what OSTK has done since I got the aforementioned middle finger raised at me via an anonymous email.
