I regret to have to break this to you, but 100% of language on mailing

Funny thing, I've spent time in Brooklyn, and no, you're quite wrong in
implying that passive-aggressive attributing of insults to people who
didn't say them is part of your local culture. In Brooklyn, people
generally just say exactly what they think with refreshing directness,
and assume if _you_ wanted to say something, you'd do it directly, too.
