Needless to say, some people have taken this morbid little game very, very seriously and sent dollops of hate-mail to the site’s creator. Also needless to say, among the funniest are the ones written by the Rabid Religious. Some of my favourites (typos/spelling mistakes retained from original):
Playing with peoples lives is not a joke. You're trying to gods job. It frightens me that there is someone out there that considers death a joke. I do feel sorry for you though. Seeing as how on judgement day you will have to stand in front of the lord knowing that you have made a mochary of his job.and
And yeah, just for your information, only God in heaven can decide when we will die and how long we will live. And there is no need to scare people off like this!See, that’s one of the great things about religion – it turns people into self-righteous, humourless blobs of fulminating mucus, which means loads of fun for the rest of us, the Walking Damned.
I also love this one:
