Mr. Unloadingzone Set-up Attempted? Or a Kid with no Guardrails?

The Anti-Tobacco crowd are really sinking to new levels of evil, desperation, and worse: thinking Mr. Unloadingzone is of low intelligence.

Below is the copy of of an email I just received. What "Tommy" says and is asking is so obviously illegal that they could only hope I would respond telling him it was that they would have a traceable return email from me and to "alter" my response.

Here's the copy: I'm not including his last name or email in case he really is just a pathetic kid.

Tommy XXXXXXXX to theunloadingzo. show details 5:53 PM (3 hours ago)


I am a fourteen year old and I was wondering if you had any suggestions for me on how to get Swedish snus without my parents finding out, also are Eclipse sold all over the country as I haven't been able to find any.

Thanks, Tommy

I wonder if "Tommy" also emailed a Beer Distributor asking the same question about beer or alcohol, or maybe the anti-tobacco crowd aren't concerned about underage drinking too? I have friends who are members of MADD (Mothers against Drunk Driving) who wouldn't find that very amusing.

TOMMY: If you really are a 14 year old, then you know you are WAY too young legally to be even thinking about using tobacco products of any kind OR alcohol let alone using're not even old enough to drive. You are BREAKING the LAW.

If you don't smoke or use tobacco now, DON'T START. Nicotine addiction is not fun.

Also, if you're over-weight; start exercising, stop eating junk food, even though you are of legal age to buy and eat potato chips, candy, sugary soda's, trans-fat acids, and all other kinds of harmful substances.

I can tell you from experience that diabetes is not fun either. Sadly, Type 2 diabetes is on the rise among minors............go run around and play; not sit in front of the TV with your PlayStation.

Reduced harm tobacco products mean just that: reduced harm. NOT Harmless. If you haven't started using tobacco yet, DON'T. If you illegally are, then QUIT NOW.

And if some store clerk is selling cigarettes to you, go to your parents and turn that person into the police. They are Breaking the Law by selling tobacco products to you and should be prosecuted.

If you like to read, go to the library and get some recommendations for some good, mind-expanding books. There are millions of them out there. Much more useful to you than reading blogs or googling tobacco. If you want to learn, work harder in school and focus on building the best possible future for yourself that you can.

Don't try and grow up so fast. I did and it wasn't worth it.

Damn! That does sound so incredibly stupid that it has to be some anti-tobacco troll targeting you. You never know though, and if Tommy is a real kid, your suggestions were just what any responsible adult would suggest.

I have a chrome one actually. But one of the 10 rules I live by professionally is "Better Paranoid than Dead".

SOMEBODY sent that email and they did it for a reason.

Thanks for the laugh though!

Hi Aaron!

You never do know. That's why high-profile celebrity authors like me can't afford to take chances! :-)

Seriously, I agree it's probably an anti-tobacco Nazi, although a rather unskilled one.

If it was legitimate, I'm sorry I couldn't afford to leave an email trail that could be distorted. If he doesn't take my advise and comes back here, I hope at least he reads that post.

I started smoking at 13 and if I had it to do all over again, I hope I wouldn't. But the late 1960's/early 1970's were a different time and mindset.

On the other hand, if I had taken every dollar I ever spent on tobacco and bought Microsoft stock with it when they first went public...

I hope if Tommy's real and reads that post, he does what I said. It's 2008 now and minors smoking or drinking, especially in today's social climate, is just wrong.

Good to hear from you again! Once the uber-snus site is up, you'll hear more from me on your excellent blog. You're also on the pre-launch preview invite list so keep an eye out!

Mr. unloading, this is silk here, I commented a few times on some other posts and read your blog regularly as well as forums. I would love you get on your pre-launch list if possible. Let me know.



Mr. UnloadingZone said...

Hi Silk!

I've missed your comments. Just got a huge order of Snus yesterday for 3 different review categories.

I couldn't find the Catch eucalyptus at my local tobacco store, so on faith, I ordered 1 can...and 1 roll of the Gotlandssnus Green! (plus another 25 cans of assorted for reviews).

You were already on the list as a frequent visitor...unless I hate the Gotlandssnus Green :-), but I've had a change of plans.

First, I don't want to miss anyone who should have been on the list (I've got hundreds of emails from people that are shy posting comments) or anyone else.

Second, I have SO much content for the new site that I'm NEVER going to get it up at this point.

So now I'm in the process of moving my existing Snus posts over, re-writing the FAQs, and a couple of other essentials.

Once that's done, even if the site isn't completely finished (and I'll be forever content loading), I'm going to post the URL while we're still working on it!

Since everything that's on The Unloading Zone will be there at least, I want to start writing my new articles over there only and give my long-time friends and readers a chance to become "Founding Members".

I'm working on that now, so hopefully we're just days away. I will make a BIG post on the front page so believe me, YOU WILL KNOW!

For new readers, since the content from The Unloading Zone will be there, it will be much more powerful and especially user friendly from the beginning.

And from you and my other friends and long-time readers, I welcome your feedback, suggestions, any bugs you may find, and how you like the site in general!

If you find anything hard to find or confusing, let me know so we can clear that up too.

I've been holding you all in suspense too long! We'll walk before we run.

So keep watching........and that's why I haven't been posting much lately...I have some REALLY juicy stuff, but I've got to get you the site I promised up.

I look forward to seeing you there!
