How does all the foul language help you get your point across. Every time I start to read a deadspin article I have to stop because of the childish filthy language. You need to grow up and learn to talk like an adult. Pathetic !!

Disgusted in alabama

From: Albert Burneko
To: Michael Brand

Come on Michael, you don’t think that’s just a little bit silly? They’re words, bud. They’re not gonna melt your eyeballs. Hang in there and finish the piece, and you’ll be glad you did.

Thanks for trying, anyway.

From: Michael Brand
To: Albert Burneko

Take care.
