the best autoreply i've received to date:

It's likely that your email has reached me in error because you are simply not bright enough to type an email address properly. Kindly double-check the address of the person to whom you were trying to send your email now, and regret your shortcomings.

The technological revolution has left you in the dust. I mean, how hard is it, really, to type an email address in the "To" field of your gui email client? You are daft. You should probably just commit seppuku and do the rest of the world a favor.

If you are emailing the tourism agency for Dekalb, Alabama, you should send an email to pattyt, not patty.

Otherwise, you are either a simpering fool or a spammer, and in either case there are few things I would enjoy more than watching you catch on fire and run around screaming. You are a waste of carbon, and I don't like you.

Have a pleasant day.
