    1) i never supported matt jackson directly or said directly that dooce shouldn’t post his e-mail address.

    2) i am not matt. i drink wine. he doesn’t.

    3) i am not on a soapbox (skerid of heights), and i am funny, and i like mrs. strizz and just about every other person i meet.

    4) stop being mean to people when they have a difference of opinion from the rest of you all. i’m not policing. i’m trying to ask you to be nicer sometimes when dooce won’t. unbecoming? maybe. but others *do* agree with me. they’re just too scared to post anything most of the time, lest they get the same treatment.

    5) sorry for offending anyone. back to the wine (whine?).

    Andrea in Canada.. isn’t it tho!! Her face pics apparently aren’t hers either (truly SHOCKING I know) It just reaffirms my belief that it takes all kinds to make the world.

    Too bad Dooce did not publish the headers along with E-mail address.

    It would be interesting to see if she has compared his IP to the people posting here. Perhaps he has posted in another name, scolding her for posting poor poor matt’s email address (forgive me if all the people who posted such comments are known regulars, I don’t read the comments often enough to know who is who – this post brought me out of lurkdom). Maybe he has begged for mercy for matt (a.k.a. himself).

    He had to have assumed she would publish the email or excerpts of it, I am sure he returned to check it out.

    Don’t we? :o)

    I’m really not bothered by posting the dude’s email address. It’s Heather’s blog, she made the repercussions clear in her, uh, mission statement type thing.

    What doesn’t sit well with me is getting other bloggers to gang up on this guy via their comments. There’s a difference between solidarity and mob mentality. What he wrote may have been *offensive* to other mothers who blog, or shit women in general, but it was *addressed* to Heather. Getting five other people involved just seemed, dare I say it, childish. Reading the responses kind of made my stomach hurt a little.

    Ever had a musical moment where you wanted to burst into song? Here’s mine:

    And I shaved my armpits bare!
    My legs are squeaky,
    And I trimmed my monkey while I was there.

    after reading the emails…I think Heather had every right. It’s her website. She was pissed but used humour to tackle the problem which was cool. I am now just wondering how Jon would have dealt with it….Jon?

    2005/03/08 at 7:40 pm

    I wonder when we will see Matt’s Website about how he got fired for postings on a website… I mean.. he made demands and didn’t get what he wanted.. I wouldn’t go so far as to say he was Dooced.. to nice of a term, I would say he was De-Weenied. Striped of the balls he shined up so brassily to display to Dooce.

  • pinky

    2005/03/08 at 7:39 pm

    It would certainly be a lovely feather in the Dooce cap, and make an even BETTER Associated Press newstory, AND give Dan Rather a heck of alot to talk about, if we, as an internet mob, could actually get Matt Jackson dooced.

    Heather, I hope your people are ready with your statements–this guy needs to be taken down.

    I can’t believe I’m back. I surfed my other daily blogs and still haven’t taken a shower. Cristin, really, you don’t want to sit too close. I smell.

    Just checking in anyway to see what hilarity was sure to ensue when I wasn’t here.

  • picklefork

    2005/03/08 at 7:27 pm

    Betcha Matt J. is a fairly recent business school graduate, still impressed with his bad self for landing what probably seems like a big important job now. He’s obviously never had a close encounter with HR — dead giveaway for a newbie. In a few years, when he has more experience, he’s going to want to curl into a little ball of red-faced embarrassment just for remembering what he wrote and what a naif he was. If he’s real, and he really works for ATT, he’s definitely going to lose his job. I suspect that’s a lesson he’s never going to forget — unfortunately, he probably won’t learn the right thing from it.

    Now, because I held catching up on my daily Dooce more important than showering today, I go forth into the watery abyss.

    2005/03/08 at 7:19 pm

    Hey I’m here at the bottom and I’m all alone. I’m such a dork.

    In my frenzy to post earlier, Dooce, I got your “Comment Submission Error” page. The bottom was a little freaky. If I weren’t buzzed, I would have thought to screenshot it for you. Sorry.

    To all of those who deride Heather for publishing Matt “Dickless” Jackson’s e-mail address:
    I think you are missing one crucial point with your arguments. While normally I would agree that today’s post would be out of line (even if the guy is a complete waste of flesh), the logic of his letter begs for a response like Heather’s. The Dickless One came to the site as a result of Heather being fired for being “obviously immature and foolish to acknowledge that [she] wrote about the company’s dirty laundry or goings on and expected nothing to happen.”
    Then he proceeds to go though his diatribe of sludge and sexism.
    But one begins to wonder, isn’t he doing the very same thing that he accuses Heather of doing? He wrote to a “public persona” with no thought of how it wold affect his business or his life – – and with comments that weren’t simply off-color but offensive, and may actually become a liability to his company himself. He’s begging to be Dooced tenfold. He’s a hypocrite and an idiot. I for one applaud Heather for showing him the other side of the coin. He deserves whatever he gets.
    Too bad he lacks the gonads to “pump out a puppy” when he’s done with this wild ride.

  • SUCK IT, Matt

    2005/03/08 at 7:14 pm

    I just signed Matt Jackson’s email address up for every ridiculous gimmick advertised in the 30 spam messages I get per day. I hope he enjoys his free daily advertisements on the “LATEST BREAKTHROUGH IN PENIS ENLARGEMENT TECHNOLOGY!”

  • gingirl

    2005/03/08 at 7:13 pm

    Just a thought….I wonder if Matt’s nasty email was an experiment…to see how many people really read dooce.com and how passionate they are about it? I would prefer to believe that rather than the possibilty that someone is so callous.

  • fyds

    2005/03/08 at 7:13 pm

    Kimberly, I take offense. Did you LOOK at the site??? We weren’t spamming it, per se. It was more, WTF do you think you’re doing passing off someone else’s pictures as your own?

    one more thing real quick so i don’t forget

    To Amanda from Canada – thanks for your compliment. Yes, the photo store manager sucked. I’m getting the camera from someone else – still the panasonic and not the ::hearing angelic music:: the nikon.

  • cathi

    2005/03/08 at 7:04 pm

    btw – I’m at 576 now. If you’ve responded to either of my previous comments, please talk amongst yourselves. I’ll be back presently.

  • cathi

    2005/03/08 at 7:01 pm

    Yeah – so I’ve only gotten so far as comment #560 because my computer crashed on me today and I’m trying to catch up.

    Raz. You can amuse me, and I love you for that. But let me mix some metaphors because I’m a lightweight and the wine is kicking in (CHEERS to the ladies! This one’s for you!)… You have a tendency to come here and climb up on a soap box, and the whole comment police thing is really unbecoming. You’ve stated your point, and it was a good one. There should be no witch hunt for Matt Jacksons (or Matt Johnsons, my God – The The’s lead singer would not have done this!). But getting Strizz all worked up and going back and forth has completely taken the focus off of that great point.

    Please, for the love of all things holy, stop.

    If this has already been addressed since post #560, I apologize, and beg you to continue as you were and forgive me for speaking before being fully aware of the conversation.

    Peace out. Word.

    2005/03/08 at 6:58 pm

    Does that mean he’s been redooced?

    (okay that was pretty bad.)

    Is he the undooce?

    Perhaps “fuckwad” is a better term.

    I’m tempted to see if there is a “fuckwad.com”, but I’m worried that there is, and I’m not gonna wanna see it.

    Kristine, that was pretty funny.

    Don’t let this one moron cancel out the rest of us – you know, the people WITH BRAINS.

    If I knew you, I’d make you a very nice grande cappuccino with microfoam and maybe a touch of hazlenut syrup if you’re into that kind of thing. THAT would cancel the motherfucker out.

    #633 says, “there must be a way to remove someone like that from a position of power. Creative ideas?” here’s an original one: have *dooce* forward his e-mail to his employer directly (since she knows who it is for certain) without shaming him publicly and pushing him deeper into the sick hole that he lives. that’ll definitely shame him more than all the anonymous hate mail he’s sure to be receiving…

  • Stacey

    Plus, anyone who steals belly photos and ultrasound pics deserves it.
