In a shameless promotion of Brio Birth's latest scam, Naomi sent out an email pleading for funding to a very large list of addresses - and forgot to use the BCC: function. For those of you who know the ancient Brio history, this is not the first time this has happened. The first time, it caused a storm of angry reply-all messages and the creation of an alternate identity for Kyle named "Jeff Smith." This time, the recipients seem quieter, but in an exciting double whammy, the email address of at least one childbirth educator Brio has severely alienated was on that list. This person replied:
I am sure that you sent this to me by mistake. As you know, two years ago the Denver Police told your husband to never contact me. I am asking you to never include my email in any of your correspondance with others. Please take my address out of your contacts. I do not and will never support any of your projects.
In an apparent misunderstanding of the phrase "never contact me," Naomi RESPONDED TO THE EMAIL with this mind-blowing bit of drivel:
So sorry for the mixup. I have chosen to live in a way where I forgive like I have amnesia and apparently it has worked! Thank you for helping me to see that. I wish you the best I all of your endeavors. As we are successful in our individual endeavors we will only encourage everyone else to be successful.

What, no "warmly?" Somewhere, I think Cher Horowitz is shaking her head.
She wants to forgive like she has amnesia? Really? Maybe she wants people to get amnesia and forgive her. Of course, with her long history of syrupy cons and burnt bridges, that's a pretty tall order. Let's break this down, shall we? Who requires forgiveness here:
1) the childbirth educator who was so frightened by Kyle that she felt the need to involve the police, and insisted that she never be contacted again, or
2) the money-grubbing privacy invader who ignored that completely appropriate insistence and barged back into that childbirth educator's life?
To anyone who lives outside the Brio Bubble, the answer is obvious, as is the identity behind door number 2. Our alienated childbirth educator sent quite possible the only civil response:
Whatever Naomi. Do not email me again.
In the real world, Naomi, I think the word you're looking for is "delusion", not "forgiveness".
