Lay low Edit
Forgive me, but I will not be able to attend your speech this evening. I'm having something of a "family emergency." Several of my brother's kids are getting out of control and -- well, I'm sure you can appreciate why I need to be available to them.
If you need to reach me, I have retired to the apartment I usually use, not far from the Chiron Building, on Grand River Road.
All of this is unfortunate, but I take consolation in the fact that these sacrifices will allow us to better do God's work.
Your book changed my life! Edit
I don't know if you read all your mails or if you have people doing this sort of thing for you. But regardless, I hope this message reaches you.
Your book, "No Better: The Myth of Human Augmentation," changed my life. I owe you so much it is hard for me to express.
I have never been a really attractive woman. I'm a bit on the chubby side and my traits are not those favored by the canons of the times. I always resented my appearance and the way I felt when people looked at me.
For years I obsessed about surgery and augmentations. I never had the money or the courage, but I always dreamed of having the perfect eyes, the perfect face, the perfect arms and so on and so forth. I was disgusted with myself; with this ugly shell I was stuck in.
But when I read your book and about all this augmentation nonsense not really being about the bettering of one's self but rather about indulging in one's self-rejection and self-disgust... it really struck a chord. All I wanted to do was poison my body, deform it and pollute it with foreign elements. Elements that are NOT human. Elements that are not ME.
I'm better now. I've joined a group for people with low self-esteem and I've gotten better. I am one of your most avid supporters and I think you are a living legend. Someone who will be remembered for hundreds of years to come.
Thank you so much,

URGENT RESPONSE NEEDED Edit
Attention: The President/CEO
Confidential Business Proposal
Having consulted with my colleagues and based on the information gathered from the Nigerian Chambers Of Commerce And Industry, I have the privilege to request for your assistance to transfer the sum of 47,500,000.00 (forty seven million, five hundred thousand credits) into your accounts. The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract, executed commissioned and paid for about five years (5) ago by a foreign contractor. This action was however intentional and since then the fund has been in a suspense account at The Central Bank Of Nigeria Apex Bank.
We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas and that is where you come in. It is important to inform you that as civil servants, we are forbidden to operate a foreign account; that is why we require your assistance. The total sum will be shared as follows: 70% for us, 25% for you an5% for local and international expenses incident to the transfer.
The transfer is risk free on both sides. I am an accountant with the Nigerian National Transhumanism Corporation (NNTC). If you find this proposal acceptable, we shall require the following documents:
(a) your banker’s name, telephone, account and fax numbers.
(b) your private telephone and fax numbers – for confidentiality and easy communication.
(c) your letter-headed paper stamped and signed
Alternatively we will furnish you with the text of what to type into your letter-headed paper, along with a breakdown explaining, comprehensively what we require of you. The business will take us thirty (30) working days to accomplish.
Please reply urgently.
