It's pretty much customer service 101 to ensure that you keep your 
communications as neutral and polite as possible, regardless of how 
frustrated or vilified you feel by the person you're supporting, and 
regardless of how tired you are of accusatory tickets.  Being snarky 
back gains little, if anything, and just helps promote a bad 
reputation.  People forget good customer service (unless it surpasses 
that to brilliant), but remember bad service.
