I am providing you with honest answers. If you would like to think otherwise that is your
prerogative. Your hostility toward me is remarkably uncalled for and unprofessional. I
received an automated email from our mail-server that said we were flagged by an RBL, 
which is why I referred to you as such, but thank you for feeling the need to correct me. 
I contacted you expecting to have a professional conversation to get this resolved. I see 
now that I will have to advise my company to contact a legal adviser, as our rights are 
being violated. Thanks again so much for your time; I hope you enjoyed reading this 
email. Expect to be contacted by our legal representative in the near future.
