Subject: Stupid vs Ignorant Clients
To Whom It May Concern:
I respectfully request that you remove the link to my blog post entitled “Stupid Things Client Say” found at this link (removed) from your post located here: http://lrgmarketing.com/uncategorized/your-clients-arent-stupid
Also, I’d like to point out that, while stupid implies a lack of ability and ignorant implies a lack of knowledge, colloquially saying “stupid things client say” does not mean someone is referring to the client as stupid. Perhaps, you could argue about definition but it really boils down to semantics.
Again, I appreciate you removing the link to my blog from your post immediately.

We are removing the link.
Just a thought: if you aren’t intending to refer to your clients as stupid, you might want to consider editing the paragraphs on your blog that begin with the sentence, “So, if you have ever uttered any of these lines to a graphic designer, consider yourself a total f**king moron.”
