Why do you seriously doubt that. In this case that seems to me the most 
likely explanation. In the context of our project, the message is 
entirely valid.
As I also cannot see how this message can cause you any problems even if 
it were true, we are not going to honor your request.

P.S. The message you sent and this reply are now also publicly archived, 
and no, those will not be removed either.
