 I got the message below.  This
 was my response:
 "You have to be kidding.  This was obviously automated
 and you don't have a clue.  It was a single email
 message from 5 years ago where one of our users recommended
 the site."
 "That said, I've removed the offending link.  I will
 also forward your message to our mailing list so they know
 not to visit your site -- ever."
 The website names below have been adjusted so we don't
 bother them again.  Just remove -nospam-.

 sole intention of manipulating search rankings.

 been placed on your site.
 The presence of these links is harmful to our site's good
 standing with search engines, and unfortunately, retaining
 them may also be potentially harmful to your own website's
