I have gotten my share of hate mail. In fact , just got one today where I was called an ultra progressive, lying, fact twisting, venomous and duplicitous bastard and part of a sleeper cell in Moultonboro because I am a member of the Moultonborough Democrats. At least this particular hate message was not sent anonymously. There have been plenty of others that were anonymous over the years. Many posted right here on the blog. I have also received a few in the US mail 5 or 6 years ago, similar to the one below, only with different messages.
Ms. Seaman's has a right to be upset, but I hope it will not deter her from covering meetings and issues as honestly as she always does. I doubt it will. It doesn't deter me either.
My advice? It was told to me by someone shortly after this years Town Meeting:
"Don't try to win over the haters. You're not the jackass whisperer"
