Dear Mr. F--,
Thank you for the informative e-mail. However, I do not feel it is neccessary to go back and address a statement I wrote in June because, frankly, I still stand by my inital assessment that the reason the book is being published in English is because HK Comics wants some of the very lucrative "DaVinci Code" money to be spent on their products. Honestly, they would be foolish not to, given what an obscenely bloated cash-cow the book has become.
As for your concerns that my statement was "dismissive," well, yes, it was supposed to be. It was what some people call "a joke." Perhaps you have heard of them?
Again, thank you for your e-mail. In the future, however, it might be in your best interest to simply not read my site, for fear that it might once again inadvertantly offend you. Thank you again, Dorian
(I get, on average, about one of these a week. Usually I just ignore them. But I'm in a lousy mood and this guy was the lucky one who pissed me off enough to not only get a response, but get it posted here.)
