Last month, we reprinted the The Nicest Unsubscribe Letter, Ever

Here's our favorite response to it, from another reader:
"that's nuts. i specifically KEEP my MUG newsletter BECAUSE i had to move out of the city….then i had a baby….so that is even more reason to keep getting the newsletter…..maintain some identity and sanity amidst poopy diapers and suburbia nonsense (which, come to think of it, isn't everything outside of the five boroughs "suburbs"?)….Jason, if you are out there, and before you lose all sense of all that is good and right, keep your subscription. your new child will thank you for it (or end up on a psych couch on the upper east side, ironically, and blame you for everything, anyway)."
