'Ignorant and rude'

FoTW Our suggestion that the newly-legit Pirate Bay could follow Vuze by offering adult content has triggered great national sensitivities. Take it away, pseudonymous reader:

Subject: You people have no common sense, ethics and moral standing whatsoever, in my personal opinion.

To: news@theregister.co.uk, andrew.orlowski@theregister.co.uk

In Reference to:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/06/30/pirate_bay_next_stop/

I am writing today due to the content and nature of the article on the above specified URL. After contacting the below given telephone number, as a contact reference on the above named domain, I was asked to email to the news desk directly with my complaint.

The Registers provided contact information is 33 Glasshouse Street, London, W1B 5DG, UK, +44 (0) 203 178 6500, Company # 3403653, VAT # GB 700 7123 87

First of all I would like to express my sincere disgust with the portrayal of Sweden as a main provider of, producer and exporter of mainly pornography as is stated on page one (1) of Mr. Orlowski’s, at best, poorly written piece.

Secondly for the record, in the event Mr. Orlowski is referring to the erotic movies company named “Swedish Erotica”, I wish to set the record straight for his uneducated pot shot at a whole nations ethical and moral standing, by clarifying the company is a) formed in the USA, California, San Fernando Valley, b) owned by Americans, c) operated by Americans and d) has nothing to do with Sweden as a country other than drawing on a popular belief that all Swedes are blonde and blue eyed.

The latter is not the case as our country has the highest number of naturalized moslem population anywhere outside the middle east, with near 17% of the population being 1st through 3rd generation immigrants from said region.

Yes, I said OUR country, as I my self am Swedish by birth and in my personal opinion, Mr. Orlowski should in the future best make such ignorant and rude statements in regard to himself, rather than sweepingly throwing a whole country in the smut-basket of TheRegister.co.uk.

After all “Theresa Orlowski” is one of the largest and best known German pornographic production agencies, so it leaves little need for me to wonder if a) Mr. Orlowski is only irritated that another company is larger than his own mothers company, or b) if he intends pot shots like the one I just made in return and response to disgracing my whole country, then I don’t think he should be permitted to even write in public through established news companies, but he can stick to twitter and blogging as it simply witnesses of an absolute lack of news value and displays the English media as an utterly poor performer in regards to research and proper ethical command. Now per the same accord YOU have taken the right to say that Swedens biggest export is Porn, I will gladly reserve my right to consider Mr Orlowski a “son of a bitch”.

I am upset, and find a suitable apology by The Register is in place, to the people of the Kingdom of Sweden, on behalf of Mr Orlowski’s lack of editorial skills.

Goodbye!
