Subject Re: public apology for company spam

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.  :-)
