Thank you for sending us your letter to the editor. We read every letter
that we receive (yes, we really do), and we appreciate and value the views
of those who take the time to send us their comments. Because of the volume
of letters we receive, we cannot respond to the authors of letters we are
unable to use. If we wish to publish your letter, we will contact you in
advance of publication. While you are reading this, here are some other
tips on how to increase the chances of having your letter published in The

2. The letter may not have been submitted to or published by any other
media or Internet outlet. This includes comments or feedback posted to Web
sites. If you have posted similar comments to a Web site, your letter will
be withdrawn from consideration.

publish letters that respond to Web site-only articles or items.
8. To make your e-mailed letter as easy for us to read as possible, do
not send any graphics or digital letterhead, put the text of your letter in

RE: FunnyJunk - TheOatmeal.com - Defamation and False Advertising
I represent the fans of TheOatmeal.com, an authentic humor site. I write to
implore that you retract your attempts to stop the efforts to raise fund
for charities as you will garner unnecessary hatred, resentment, and even
negative publicity in both cyber and media from readers, viewers, and
donors from all walks of life. I will even consider writing in to the US
Embassy in my country to request the American Bar Association to review
your actions which has no beneficial value whatsoever to bears and victims
Firstly, donations are made in attempt to support bears and cancer victims.
These actions made by contributors worldwide knowingly that the money will
go to the beneficiaries. In your action to request IndieGoGo to disable the
fundraising attempt, it is a petty act from your end which is thoughtless
Your comments had already been circulated on many forms on social media and
the general consensus of your responses to the fundraising efforts is
widely deemed as petty and had generated much ill will online.
Consider it an act of truce if you post on your website that you are really
sorry that you even tried to request to disable the fundraising attempt.
