I do not respond well

I somehow got subscribed (without my consent, btw) to a listserv that sent out emails about Iran. Of course, more than half these emails are in Farsi, a language I cannot read. So, I ask to unsubscribe. The response I got was priceless. And, jeez, so freaking Persian.
Regretfully you have just left a list that passionately cares for Iran, and prosperity of Iranians. You just turned your back to Iran and oppressed people of Iran, in their struggle to re-gain their FREEDOM.
I think it'd be more effective if they laid on the guilt a little thicker. "You have just personally killed four political prisoners. If you don't rejoin our list right away, their dead bodies will be mutilated and their corpses hung above their families' doors, and it will be all your fault. I hope you're happy now."

I second Caroline.

Also, perhaps you should email them back with your suggested language. I'm sure that's more what they were trying to get at. :)
