Dear funny little pompous person,
Well, you were quite right to make sure we understood that Mr. W. is "giving his permission" for us to do you the favor of including an ad for your event in our newsletter. It didn't take any effort at all to create the ad from the flyer you sent around, and that space would just have gone to waste otherwise, something we desperately *must* avoid. Think of the trees!
Your faithful and grateful servant,
