I keep getting emails from some person — I’m not sure whether this is a man or a woman, they don’t give their name — claiming to have seen one of my MPs in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. They also often claim that a certain man (an actual resident of Pawtucket, according to Spokeo, but I don’t want to name him to protect his privacy) was involved in the disappearance or “should be questioned” about the MP. It doesn’t seem to matter what kind of case it is — family abduction, voluntary missing adult, foul play suspected, whatever — or how old the case is.
I have gotten 49 emails from this individual (each time claiming to have seen a different MP in Pawtucket) TODAY ALONE. I got three more as I was writing this entry. This person writes me occasionally, sending mass emails like this to me every couple of months for a few days at a time. At this rate you’d think the city of Pawtucket is populated by no one except MPs, my correspondent, and the apparent serial kidnapper/killer my correspondent names as having caused all those disappearances.
I tried to block the person before but it didn’t work for some reason. I have never written back to any of their emails because I’m pretty sure a polite request to go away is not going to work. You might recall that I called the cops on a previous email stalker, but that was because I had their address. The only thing I know about this person is that they apparently live in Pawtucket and own a BlackBerry.
Maybe just blocking emails with the word “Pawtucket” will work. I’m sick of deleting this person’s emails from my inbox.
