Yep, his response was a little crusty; I think the old guy thought you were claiming he is known for selling client information, and it pissed him off. Email is a bitch that way; you can never be sure how your written words will be taken when the reader does not have your voice or facial expressions as other clues.

It has happened to me.

Actually to me your message looked like you were saying, "listen you grimy vendor, I'll buy your shit, but don't cross me me, cause I'm a bad ....."

But maybe that is just me.
