public apology for company spam

Yonik Seeley-2
This morning, an apparently over-zealous marketing firm, on behalf of
the company I work for, sent out a marketing email to a large number
of subscribers of the Lucene email lists.  This was done without my
knowledge or approval, and I can assure you that I'll make all efforts
to prevent it from happening again.

Sincerest apologies,
-Yonik

Yonik,

Thank-you for your email. I appreciated and accept your apology.

Indeed the spam was annoying, but I think that you and your colleagues
have significant social capital in the Lucene and Solr communities, so
this minor but unfortunate incident should have minimal impact.

That said, you and your colleagues do not have infinite social
capital, and hopefully you will have no  reason to be forced to spend
this capital in such an unfortunate manner in the future.  :-)

sincerely,

Glen Newton

It would be forgivable if only the email didn't contain the  
misspelling "Lucen" :)
