So we are getting noticed, guys. Not by the right people, but still. As someone pointed out bad publicity is still publicity.
You see, we are getting complaints. Yay!
First, the magAZine editor received a Soviet style letter, signed by a collective of tovarishes who were all terribly insulted- not by anything specific that I said, but the tone I used.
I then had an email from one of the gang calling me an IDIOT.
And then, this comment I received today, was particularly good:
"I ve read your post and was terrified .How could you humiliate Azerbaijani girls and advise to English men not to marry just for reason that they are close to their family? You are married to English man!!! So he has to divorce you then!!
You had better talk about that English people have lost normal relationship with their parents instead of accusing Azerbaijani girls!!! It is really tragedy!!!
And about nickname Scary Azeri. It is insulting, humiliating, disgusting, Do you realise that you insulting the Azerbaijan nation??? If you dont respect yourself at least respect Azerbaijanians. it is shame!!!
I am asking you to change your nickname and putting Scary and your name not Azery.
You have got a writing talent but you write no nice things."
I mean, what can I say to that?
Try to explain? No point. Try to justify? Can’t be bothered.
So, I just wished her all the best and told her to stay away from this blog, so it would not upset her again.
But please help me out here. If you know what causes this utter lack of understanding, perhaps you could enlighten me.
Is it her English? Did she just misinterpret what I was trying to say? Is it lack of a sense of humour? Or is it, and yes, I might have to say it out loud- stupidity? Because, let’s face it. There are a lot of stupid people in this world. An awful, or as darling Sevda here would say- disgusting lot of stupid people in this world.
