I think people may be getting a little carried away with the NSFW stuff.. let's remember we have a diverse readership.

OK, here's the actual thing! (see attachment in previous post)

That's pretty funny anyway.

I don't think I'd get too offended by it or take it too personal - it sounds kind of jokey to me. Can't be that serious when they are attempting humour with the kazoos and web-cam stuff. In fact, to me, they sound like they admire you - they are probably quite jealous of your more manly toilet smells. Maybe they are even a little intimidated so feel they've had to make a bit of a joke of it all - they don't know who you are, you could be the psychotic-sh*tter that will gladly punch their teeth out of their heads and into the nearest urinal.

I got the exact opposite when reading it. I heard an arrogant, pompous (I'm behaving now :P ) blah blah blah. I didn't find it in the least bit funny.

It's interesting how we can get the exact opposite message from the same thing.

I'm just curious about who's so anal that they're keeping track of where people using the restroom are coming from?

It is difficult to know what the tone is meant to be, perhaps that ought to be Superboy's response "Please add emoticons to your statement next time as I really don't know whether to laugh or just take a sh*t in your sink. Have a nice day."

[My reading of the statement is probably influenced by the people I've worked with in the (distant) past renovating houses. Mainly the boss (an old school friend) often took great delight in trying to upset me with nasty comments - this was to "get us all through the day and have a bit of a crack". In an office environment you'd most likely call it "bullying". The thing is, although the comments were often carefully constructed to be as insulting as possible they were also quite funny - I never knew if he despised me (as that's what it sounded like) or he just had a very warped and malicious sense of humour (or a mental problem). I would attempt to upset him in equal measure but he seemed impervious to it. (We're still friends and he still has the same charming manner).]

Yeah, me too.  I know these people, and they are not happy or joking about this at all.  Quite a judgemental bunch and on top of that, individuals feel like they "own" certain things that they have absolutely zero ownership over.  We'll see what happens.  I predict that this is not the end of it.

In that case I recommend you completely ignore them and their message. No point creating a scene nor a situation that could get out of hand. Not acknowledging their note will spoil their fun more than responding to it.

There is also the "correct" procedure of taking this to someone higher and making a complaint. This kind of thing isn't meant to be tolerated these days, is it?

But that's no fun... :(

No. It's not meant to be tolerated. It's meant to be responded to, with funny messages involving peanuts and corn~! :P ;D

Reading the original post, I can not help but keep thinking of this episode of How I Met Your Mother.  ;D
