“What does that mean anyway?”
“Why did he copy my boss?”
Do you know?
“The biggest problem with communication is that this is confusion.” – George Bernard Shaw

1. Considering the mall intent
Sure people play games, but not most of us, most of the time, everything is not deliberate, so do not give an innocent inspection like avoiding a sincerity or relieving the confidence of getting out of a meeting.

If there is no answer, then only re-invite the invitation to your meeting to include those, which are the most important for conversation and decision-making process.
