I had a nasty email from a man a couple of months ago whose wife was a member here. They shared an email address and he was getting our newsletter and it upset him. I was as nice as I could be to him but he just lashed out at me like I had committed the crime of the century for sending an email to his dead wife who just didn't have the courtesy of notifying me of her passing.
Some people don't deal with death well. My guess is that you can't do anything right in some cases.
I say let Christmas be Christmas.
