My reply was typical of my character who was, at the time, filled with sentiments of the season, enhanced by a snow storm:
I'll reproduce any part of this f***ing message in any manner I want, any venue I want, any language I want, and share it with whoever the f*** I want. And there's not one F***ING THING you can do about it.
That apparently left them speechless, as all I received was a blank email reply.
Guess they didn't know that Santa could be THAT bad...
