I got a private bcc: on the RHEL launch, and I considered that spam. I
replied to it and it was a mistake. (turns out I know the person
behind the marketing agency)

As for the message addressed to PLUG: it's not defined because we
don't have a policy on commercial messages (besides jobs). Such a
policy could also address the issue on the other "spam" message which
was marketing a service.
