I am impressed that you stepped up, admitted the mistake, and apologized. Thank you for taking responsibility.
Anyone reading this who can say they never made a mistake can continue to criticize you. As I am about as far from that standard as one can be, I will consider this penance enough for your first mistake.
Fair warning: If you email nanog-l multiple times “by mistake”, that will not be so easily overlooked. Whether in error or not, multiple “mistakes” become a problem. Remember Grey’s law, "sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice” (or the similar Heinlein’s law, or Hanlon’s razor, etc.). Perhaps you should spend some extra time verifying your list hygiene?

>>> Hi, Lady Benjamin from 6x7 here, and I'm proud to share with you an update on me and the company.
>>> Through our adjunct division, 6x7 just received type approval from the Kenyan government to import core routers capable of over 8tbps (8 terrabits per second). This will enable us to enter the Kenyan IP transit and transport markets, and service both datacenter and soon office buildings and eventually residences with high speed, safe, secure global fiber connectivity. The market in Kenya is severely impacted now due to limited fiber availability, and 6x7 will leverage it's undersea connections to bring more wholesale bandwidth into the area, creating the economy by which we expect to grow.
