Strong Bad Email, often abbreviated to sbemail, was once a minor feature in which Strong Bad would respond to fan-sent emails and usually insult the spelling and grammar of people who wrote to him. A typical Strong Bad Email has a plethora of Easter eggs and other hidden content, which is frequently discovered at the finish of the game. The feature was created on January 11, 2003 and ended on May 31, 2017.
The first email that Strong Bad sent was on January 11, 2003 to [email protected] with the subject line "Hello." In it, he introduced himself and thanked the person who sent him an email. He then went on to explain that because he received so many spam emails every day, he had to make the difficult decision to only reply to real fans. He concluded by saying that although he loved receiving letters from his fans, it was not possible for him to answer them all so please keep writing!
After this initial email, there was nearly a three year period where Strong Bad did not send any more replies. This is when he was working on Homestar Runner full time. In 2006, he decided to bring back Strong Bad Email as a hobby and started sending messages again. By 2008, he began sending emails five days a week instead of just three so he could get more done in less time.
Over the years, Strong Bad's inbox has grown quite large so he now receives emails from all over the world that want him to reply to them.
All of the threatening emails were genuine. Fans willingly contributed all of the emails read. Mile, the only one that wasn't made by a spectator, was cleverly crafted by The Cheat. He got his job prospects revoked after sending that one.
So there you have it, folks. Strong Bad is not in danger at this moment. All threats will be taken seriously but none of them pose any sort of threat to him or his family.
He has also received many letters from fans over the years telling him how much he means to them. Some of these letters have been published on the blog during "Thank You" weeks.
A bias-based letter that contains harsh, aggressive, and damaging words intended towards a specific individual or group. If the letter does not contain specific threats, it is not always constituted a crime. However, just sending such a letter can be considered harassment under certain circumstances.
The FBI's website has more information on this topic.
If the receiver receives hundreds of emails every day, the odds of your email being overlooked are increased. If your email has a captivating subject line, it will capture the reader's attention and enhance the likelihood of the receiver reading your email. Email clients can be unhelpful here - they display only the first few words of an email subject line when composing a new message, which means that you need to write something interesting enough to hold the reader's interest over these initial few words.
The second purpose of a good subject line is to make the recipient want to open your email. Most people read their emails on their phones or computers, so they need to be able to understand the subject quickly in order not to miss out on important information. Using simple language and presenting relevant information in a concise way will help them decide what to do with your email.
There are several ways to improve your email subject lines. The first thing to remember is that they should be short but descriptive. Potential recipients may skip over long subject lines so it's important that you give them enough information to make the decision to open your email, but not so much that they get tired of reading them. A good rule of thumb is to write one sentence that describes your email content simply yet accurately. For example, if your email is about how to fix a car, then a simple "how to fix a car" subject line would be appropriate.
