That doesn't come across as arrogant to me.  It sounds more like, "We 
aren't allowed to help you, but we're not going to try to stop you either."

And, I just figured out the correct response to anybody who thinks it's 
legitimate to do something like this "because I think I need it" even 
after being told that it's against company policy:

"What *was* your username?"
