Nasty reader award
October 26, 2010 12:34 am
Love, love, love your site. I find it very informative and am pleased to say that I now think before I squish. (I admit, though, that cockroaches are squished without a second thought. Fortunately I haven’t had roaches to squish since I lived in that one questionable apartment…) anyway, I wanted to say kudos to you for having the ”Nasty Reader Award” links. Too often the people who write nasty letters get no comeuppance (sp?) and it gives me great satisfaction to see that at least a few of these horrible people face some kind of recourse. Keep up the great work, both with the bugs and the karma. (PS- I included the pic of me because for some reason the site wouldn’t let me send this w/out a pic. Please don’t post it! Thanks!)

Dear Faithful reader in Maryland,
Thank you for your nice letter. We are pleased to hear that our website has contributed toward your appreciation of and tolerance for the lower beasts. We admit that we ourselves have very little tolerance for certain creatures, like the Argentine Ants that have colonized Southern California. While we will tolerate them in the garden, they are dispatched without mercy should they happen to invade the kitchen. We are happy to honor your request not to publish the beguiling image of you dancing at what looks like a fun party because What’s That Bug? does not run a dating service and we imagine that we would be getting countless comments and requests from the eligible gentlemen among our readership if we were to run your photo.
