I showed the email to my girlfriend who suggested to email back the following:
I will, of course, remove you from the distribution list so you will no longer receive the emoticons.
You could just have requested to be removed from the list without all the profanity.
If you are unable to understand this email, please let me know and I will reply in a manner more in keeping with your degree of intelligence.
I've already removed their email from the distribution list, but I'm not sure whether and how I should reply to their email.
I'm really tempted to send them back a sarcastic reply as my girlfriend suggested. Or I can just email a standard reply, saying, you've been removed, although I'd feel I should at least point out that swearing isn't really the way to go about it.
I realise that it's probably an 12 year old, and I shouldn't worry about it, but I just feel I have to rant about it.
What would you do?
