WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER SENDING ME AN EMAIL
If you are an open or questioning LGBT student at Oral Roberts University and contact me seeking resources and allies, I am here to help you and will gladly connect you with people you can trust. If you contact me seeking more information about something in particular I’ve written, I won’t guarantee I’ll give it to you, but I’ll do my best to help you. If you’re a former high school or college classmate interested in reconnecting and contact me here, ultimately I’ll direct you to Facebook, but I’ll be happy to respond.
Other than that, don’t expect much. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate when people take time to write an email saying they really enjoyed something I said or my blog in general (and, I promise, I really do read all of them), but please bear in mind that I simply don’t have time to respond and begin conversations with every individual who kindly sends me an email. I also appreciate negative feedback and criticism and read that as well; any writer who doesn’t receive constructive criticism with grace isn’t really being serious about writing. At any rate, this isn’t to say I won’t ever respond, but just don’t be counting on it. Cheers!
Things to Keep in Mind
- I strongly advise against emailing me with threats, warnings to “watch your back,” or other things suggestive of violence. You might in fact be just a run-of-the-mill dumbass, but I take things like that very seriously. And, if you do send something I perceive to be threatening, however slightly, I will report you to the FBI, no questions asked.
- Please do not email me soliciting a long-distance relationship, to propose, or to request that I meet you in Bangkok. You might in fact be a wonderful person, but that’s genuinely creepy and it will result in you, the creepmeister, being instantly blocked from my email. And, depending on how creepy you are, I may report you to the FBI too.
