Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:er, that looks like a pretty straightforward normal compliment to me.
but then i generally hang round with some quite dysfunctional people rolleyes

He says that your vid is amazing in the subject of his mail:
"impressed by your amazing vid"

"Your video was the greatest load of old censored censored i've ever seen."
could be interpreted as good or bad, but the previous subject of the mail shows it to be complimentary.

The fact that he calls you a twat, and wishes you to have relations with a skaghead and die of an STD, does not necessarily mean that he bears you any ill will. It seems to me that he's expressing mock anger at your skill level being so much higher than his. So again, that is a compliment.

Though of course, it is a bit silly to send emails like that to people you don't know.

Posted:I'd have laughed then hit delete and never thought of it again.. even the vid was terrible, who got the right to say that?? Some people...... eek

The next bit is offtopic but about the what does wop mean in SA.. I don't like the thought of the SA being disliked because of mis-communication see..... its from some website I just found..

wop is often thought to be an acronym for With Out Passport, supposedly used on Ellis Island to designate immigrants without proper papers. This pejorative term for an Italian was probably first used in America, but its roots are in the Romance languages.

Like many other etymologies contained in these pages, this one is not certain, although most authorities agree on the likely origin. It probably derives from the Italian dialectical guappo, or thug. This in turn derives from the Spanish guapo, meaning a dashing braggart or bully, and which eventually derives from the Latin vappa, meaning flat wine or scoundrel.


I used to be indecisive, but I'm not so sure now.....

You think the subject title is sarcasm.
