I don’t have a phone, and if I mailed my question, I wouldn’t receive an answer until after the January 13th deadline. Could you please give me Ms. Greenspan’s email address?

There’s no reply in this email. Hello? May I have Ms. Greenspan’s email address?

I am typing my text above that line, but I’m still not getting a response to my question. What seems to be the problem?

Are you messing with me, or what? Please know that I will be posting all these non-responses on my blog, easily searchable in Google.


The help desk kept sending my email back with no response. So, this was my last email to them:

Sorry, but you deserve this: Fuck you.

Let this be a lesson to the CDC:  This is what happens when you fuck with someone in constant pain.

So, I’m never going to find out why my comments were banned. Great. Wonderful. Why did I even try?

  1. That’s rotten. So your second comment was approved, but not the first? I read one comment where a dude caps shouted at the CDC and told them not to be fucktards, so I doubt your comment was censored for being inappropriate. People with chronic pain are lucky to have you to make some noise! Maybe that’s why you try?

    • No, my comments weren’t censored for being inappropriate, which means it’s all about me. Who would have thought that the CDC was afraid of little ol’ me? Hopefully, I’ll find a bud connection before January 13th, and then I’m gonna let them have it — comments galore! And this time, anonymous comments. But at this point, I’m too angry to try again. Someone find me a wall to punch…

If you don't comment, I'll just assume you agree with me
