Ich verstehe das nicht

Dear Advertiser,

Alas, I read none of pashtun, farsi, arabic, or syriac; never mind whether I could distinguish among them, or how different they'd look to you. You might also guess by my institutional IP address that I don't have much disposable income at the moment, however much folk like me may enjoy spending. Altogether, there's not much point. I shall be asking Mary to pray for you.

If you really mean "Dear Spammer," you're certainly giving the addressed party a more dignified status than it deserves!

Nope, it wasn't spamail; regular ad-space rented out by TVTropes of all places --- but, again, they don't control who uses their space: it's probably something between their ISP, my ISP, and $wxyz$.
