You've got to be kidding me

I received the following email from the SSJ Forum.
Dear Mr. Murata,

We have already sent the two replies last week, which
we recite below with the time of origin.

Please check out the following two messages called "
Original Message(2)" and "Original Message(1)"
respectively.

Dear Mr. Murata,


Thank you for your e-mail. Since we cannot forward an
attached file of any kind, we will post your message
with the attached file.

Thank you and best wishes,
Akira Motegi, Moderator SSJ Forum
Of course, his response is completely absurd. The following is a copy of the email I received from him on January 10.

As you can see, the last sentence of his email is, “We will send another reply to your message which was sent to us and Mr. Truong soon.”

Again, notice the part about how the message “was sent to us and Mr. Truong.” If the message was sent to the SSJ Forum that means that the moderator did not write the message. The two messages that the moderator sent me today were clearly written by him. Neither of those two messages could be the one he was referring to in the email he sent on January 10.

I don’t know what he is trying to pull here but I intend on finding out.
