You did receive one response with a suggestion:

I don't see how it's productive for you to assume humor-as-arrogance and
respond to that but avoid responding to the suggestion.

Ok.  I'll bite.  Has anyone done a google search to see if anyone else
was confused by this message?  The message seems pretty clear to me and
not something that I would misinterpret.  It doesn't seem like this is
something that anyone should take a lot of time fixing if we've only
gotten one complaint.  OTOH, if more people have been confused by the
message then possibly it is something worth changing.
