Working hard at addressing your concern

Dear Mr. Tyler Simmons,

Thank you for your email which unfortunately resulted in a bounceback when I replied.

Thankfully you dropped some clues about how to obtain your real name. Phew.

I did forward your concern about my concern about your bong use on a public commuter train to my legal team. I'm so glad you suggested I do so. As much as you felt I had violated your friends' privacy by posting a now deleted photo from Instagram, but what was a very public photo, to my website, I feel you violated my integrity as a respected transit blogger by removing a picture you felt legally obliged to post with a hashtag referencing a government-operated transit company funded by taxpayers and fare-paying passengers like myself. I don't take too kindly to that kind of passive aggressive behavior.

As for your threat of legal action may I present to you the formal response from my lawyers:

I am positive that the shits they give about your right to privacy is duly noted. I feel the same.

Cindy J. Smith

Love to see the cattorneys hard at work.

And once again, I love how people expect privacy on a public train and hashtag the crap out of their picture for all the PUBLIC to see.

LOVE THIS!! You're the best! Plus cats make for good legal counsel - as they can be quite judgemental!

I don't think the internet tubes mean what they think they mean.

I love how people have zero clues about hashtags
