Well, while I do agree with your original point (I myself went into
a bit of reflection to find something better than just "guys"), I'd
just consider that my interlocutor might feel such a response as
being scalded in public, which ain't nice. Therefore, in such cases
I'd much prefer to resort to secret diplomacy first.

"But I have been very polite" -- take into account that this is a
huge mailing list with people from various corners of the planet,
whose feelings may be very different from yours...

Of course that'd be different if someone is obviously trolling.
