Third time's the charm?

Let's find out.


Actually, as you'll see from the first paragraph of the letter, this is the fourth attempt.

Anyway, as to why we wrote: We at El Naschie Watch would appreciate very much hearing any statement you might give on behalf of your client M.S. El Naschie. This is vis-à-vis El Naschie being pwned by Douglas N. Arnold, the president of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). We cover the story here.

How's the Nature case going?

How much are you charging El Naschie? A lot, we hope.

Is El Naschie planning to sue SIAM?

We are sorry to send this email broadly within your organization. Nobody likes spam. Please do let us know specifically to whom we should write.

Our last letter to you, which you didn't answer, can be found here.

Best regards,

Jason


Aside from a handfull of out-of-office autoreplies, this seems to have worked.

  1. Heh, Jason, considering a recent post from a sockpuppet, the Naschie party will interpret this line:

    "How much are you charging El Naschie? A lot, we hope."

    as:

    "A lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns."

    In the same fashion: Make Collyer-Bristow an offer they can't refuse; they will respond for sure. LOL
