How bad would it be if I get snippy in my own AskMe?

I just wrote and deleted an exasperated reply in this AskMe.
I'm holding back because getting angry in that thread doesn't seem very courteous, yet I can't seem to make it clear to people that I don't want suggestions for British TV shows. About a third of the suggestions are for British TV shows, even while other commenters are pointing out that I don't want British TV suggestions.
Is it ever a good idea to get outraged? Does it work? My particular example is hardly earth-shattering, but I know that lots of people just don't answer the question that is posted, they answer the question that is in their head. What to do about it?
