In a previous email I referred to a fundraising claim as "filthy marketing lies". That phrase was unduly harsh, and could give the impression that I was impugning the moral character of the people who wrote and approved the message. For that I am sorry and issue a formal retraction.
I have not yet returned to the mailing list or the meta page, so I don't know what was said in response nor even if the email passed moderation. That is intentional. I wanted to be able to write this with a clear head, and not be tempted to dilute this apology with rebuttals and explanations. I hope you understand, Pelagic.
