    Default Has Jo Rivett lost the plot?.

    Got this email below about 30 mins ago from Jo Rivett has anyone had one aswell?. I failed to find the humor in it and found it slightly offensive really. What is his problem?. Seeing i lost my faith in humanity recently this only adds to the reason why i have.

    Hi one `n all.
    Just a quick reminder about the fantastic % discounts % available. THERE ARE NONE, have never been any, and will never be any. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it! (But please share, I too like a good puff now and then)
    I have been busy updating the site today and will continue through to the end of next week. (That has sweet FA to do with discounts I know, it still sounds nice and will get people clicking like mad on my site)
    Almost every section will have items added to it, including the new BLYAT section. As explained in that section, BLYAT actually means BARGAINS in Russian, and that`s what you will get there.
    Apart from that, happy Easter, top of the week to you all, and Blyat!

    Very odd indeed and not appreciated at least for me anyway. Maybe i have missed something?. If this is a way to drum up business i fail to see who would want to buy after receiving this.

    Yeah, I got that same email. I've chatted with Jo a few times via email, and he's a very witty and clever guy, whose humor can be a bit abrasive from my experiences. At the same time, he's typically been a really funny guy, and I think he's trying to be humorous, not offensive here. It may be a little much for a promotional email though, and could easily send the wrong signals. Still, he's been good to me, so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    People often mistake my demeanour on here as also being offensive, but it's never meant that way.

    There was a time when I was younger that I thought the whole world revolved around me. But after a while, I realised that this was not the case, and in fact the world revolved around the sun.....








    ....That shines out my ar$e.


    I love you guys, really, Ned.

    Thanks Gunny old pal,

    Btw, with all the new tatts you've been getting lately, i've decided in future to no longer call you Gunny, but "Death Row" Hartmann instead......Sound as a pound.

    I got it too. I thought is was actually funny, but I have a warped sense of humour at times
