"you're making a mistake . . . [my defense] . . . You're misinformed"
"oh okay, why firm X if I may ask?"
"Thanks." <- sum total of email.

At least, it is when it plays out in my head. #2 and #3 are pretty standard, though. #2 may be a little uncomfortable for you, but it's not meant to be malicious - more like a candidate survey.
