Are You Expecting an Email Response From Me?

blogging

Several months ago, I switched to using an email address from mail.com. Mail.com offers alias addresses, so I started using brucegerencser@atheist.com for contact form email. I responded to seventy-five or so emails with this address. Unfortunately, I have learned from Carolyn, my editor, and other readers that emails from me using this address ended up in their spam folders. Carolyn and I tried numerous “tricks” to fix this problem, but nothing worked. As a result, I have switched to a Gmail address for blog-related emails.

I plan to try to re-send the aforementioned emails. If you emailed me and never got a response, please send your email to me again. I’ve been blogging since 2007– fifteen years. I answer EVERY email I receive. Due to my declining health, I am hopelessly behind in answering emails. That said, I do eventually answer them. At times, I have been two to three months behind. There will be days when I get a bit of wind in my sails and I will answer a bunch of emails. Recently, I answered twenty-five emails over a forty-eight-hour period.

I have a Contact Page because I genuinely want to hear from readers. I pride myself on being open, honest, and accessible. This means, of course, that I am going to get emails from people I call Assholes for JesusĀ®. The reason I changed email addresses several months ago was due to one Evangelical man’s incessant harassment of me. I am trying to do a better job at recognizing such people and not using a real address to respond to them. Instead, I use an anonymous email service to reply to them.

As always, thank you for your love and support.
