The venerable Joe Marasco pointed out that e raised to the power of i times pi is negative one; I'd incorrectly quoted a degenerate form of Euler's formula, which is simply e **(i * pi) + 1 = 0
Thus, it is more correct to say that "the absolute value of three times e raised to the power of i time pi people emailed me about my blog outage". Thank you, Joe, for keeping me honest. I think I'll keep my day job and stop pretending I'm a mathematician.
