My favorite letters in the Dear Abbey Column are the ones she writes as a private response to an undisclosed writer.
I’ve decided that this is a perfect response to the “questionable” comments I get in my email.
This will be an ongoing project:

I’m glad that you don’t need a psychiatrist and that you think you’ve grown up.
You might want to see a behaviorist for your arrogance.
They are not really psychiatrists, so you won’t be breaking your rule.
