I just wanted the group to know that because I made a mistake by
clicking on the wrong button and sending two messages to the group
instead of to the individuals intended that I as well as my family
have had our income substantially reduced. You have made such a fuss
with my email provider(bigfoot) that they canceled my id without
hearing my side and without any notice. I was using this id as my
main business ID. Besides the business I lost because I did not get
timely notification, by people thinking I had gone out of business
and by the loss of goodwill, I have had to spend two days making
contact with people to explain the situation instead doing paying
work. What do you think was my motivation for this supposed spam?
There was no way I could profit from it. There was no one in the
group who I had had an argument with. What other explanation can you
give other than the true one I gave: that I made a mistake? 
I hope that in the future that you will think a little before making
a complaint that is so damaging. You might find out what the
circumstances are before acting. The damage done is way out of
proportion to the perceived act. 
How about a kinder, gentler list???
Yours truly,
