[I've put the messages from the "fan" in italics, just to make the contrast between the two authors easier to see.]
[Vanima writes to me as follows:]
Really weird question for you and is quite off-putting but I don't mean any disrespect, my brains just a bit too jumpy along with my fingers... here it is: Are you really vegan? No disrespect I really mean it out of curiosity.. Please.... no lies
[Emphasis added to indicate my incredulity at receiving this question.]
BTW I'm sorry for the other day it was just a video from Fandar III and I was curious about your response to him which was kind of shocking but not shocking at the same time, cause fandar has been a long term hater and conspiracy theorist, I didn't want to answer the other day cause it was such a... stupid question. :/ I was basically like, "Is that really him"
Really good critique of the anonymous for the voiceless though and I think that criticism was a 100% meaningful and it actually makes common sense to anyone and that wasn't hating by any means, that contributes fully against the movement if you ask me, shutting your mouth is the worst you can do it's true, people have jobs and other things to do than stand there.
[Two minutes later, she writes again:]
BTW I was talking about your comments on the gabby petito case in my earlier email.
Never write to me again.
Not five years from now.
[Note: this is not unprecedented. Some of you may recall that I replied to a self-evidently stupid and/or crazy "fan" a few years ago asking her to never write back to me. She responded with an escalating series of threats (that she'd have her lawyer sue me, etc.)… but the emal I'd sent that infuriated her was just a single-sentence long, "Never write to me again." That video is still on my channel, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Je82VMv9BlE I did receive later email from some kind of male relative of hers (or boyfriend?)… these messages told the tale of a grim fate ensuing for her thereafter, with worsening "mental health issues"… but, of course, I cannot verify the truth of what was merely told to me in such an email.]
To E.M.(Immoral brat)😂, So you're telling me, you're charitable? You're kind? You're moral? You're ethical? I'm pleased to know the truth anyway, I in fact knew you're a liar, Learn what ethics is, and yes, there's no way in the world, you're a scholar of buddhism, you're not ethical in the lowest sense. We need to get rid of people like you in the movement who lie to people's faces, I've tried my best to be charitable :/ You know I did, sad to see your ego get the better of you and I will in fact learn from this lesson, if you're angry about my comments on youtube and you came to a dead end, I'll remove the offensive comments but the truth needs to be spilled sometimes, whether you like it or hate it.

I'm not angry at you.
I reply to intelligent people.
You're an idiot.
You've demonstrated --repeatedly-- that you're an extremely stupid person.
If you want a vegan activist who will talk to you —no matter how stupid you are— please try StellaTheLight. She charges $299 per month. Inasmuch as I understand the service she offers, she will talk to you by voice and text message for a full month, for that price. Perhaps you'd find that very encouraging.
That's not what I do.
I talk to brilliant, hardworking, talented people.
They don't pay me. I don't pay them. They recognize my ambition, and I recognize theirs. That's why we make time for each-other.
You know how to use google?
You can read an avalanche of evidence as to my history as a scholar of Buddhism, if you can simply use google.
^ Just hit "page down" and scroll through that list of articles.
You can read an avalanche of evidence showing that I'm vegan (in both writing and video form) going back many years.
Anyone can read the articles I've written, anyone can watch the youtube videos I've published.
Anyone and everyone.
Not everyone gets to communicate with me by email.
Not everyone gets to talk to me via the telephone, via Skype, etc.
Not everyone gets to meet me in person.
No, not everyone.
Talented, hardworking, brilliant people —or, at least, people who seem intelligent, interesting and promising.
You have none of these redeeming qualities.
Apparently, you find it very easy to revile me as (1) someone who doesn't speak Chinese, (2) someone who never was a scholar of Buddhism, and (3) as someone is not (and never was?) vegan. This demonstrates that you are both stupid and malign: you are not able to understand the evidence that is in front of you —and you have bad intentions (in "seeing only what you want to see", and what it is that you "want" reflects very badly on you).
So, again, simply: never write to me.
You can watch my videos. You can learn from my videos.
But you won't.
Some people can learn. Some people can improve.
You're going to remain an imbecile forever.
Another example showing how self-indulgent you can be, if you want to call people stupid without any context whatsoever, we're talking about veganism not buddhism, as I said, I won't write to you ever again, period. Let me tell you something you're extremely dumb and mean-spirited if you reply to me and even reply simply anything to me, if you reply, you're stupid and ugly, along with being fat. If you reply, you're all that ^
