The Revenge of Richard Dennis

Another note from one of my most persistent interlocutors, Richard Dennis. You may remember Richard “Buzz” Dennis from his hilarious legal threat or his cartographic warfare on dennis.com.

Incredibly, he had the nerve to write me again, almost a year to the day he sent his last note, asking about dennis.com:

    From Richard Dennis <www.richarddennis.com@gmail.com>
    Subject: Dennis.com for Sale?

    Hey Pat,

    Are you thinking of selling Dennis.com ?

My reply:

    Buzz:

    Good to hear from you again!

    Just to make sure I’ve got the timeline clear: first, you made a ridiculous
    threat:

    http://www.patrick.com/front/archives/2003/08/hilarious_threa.html

    Then you claimed ownership of the domain name on your website:

    http://www.patrick.com/front/archives/2006/08/richard_dennis_is_back.html

    And now you ask me again whether I’m going to sell the domain? Pretty
    impressive.

    10 points for continued persistance, but I’m afraid I’m going to have
    deduct another 10,000 for ongoing lack of tact and style. That puts
    you at negative 19,990 points, so I’m afraid I can’t offer you the
    domain.
