Honest, I guess, but still not what I like to be told

Hello Mark,

Thank you for your email. We get all of our exposure from the televised
events at the WSOP. The main event accounts for a huge amount of this
exposure. This would be the main reason most of our efforts are geared
towards getting as many of our players into this event as possible.

Now, maybe I pitched my email too much toward what was in Stars' benefit. But being told in almost as many words that "we're running these for our benefit rather than yours" is a bit much.
