I agree, it was not intended to be a public reply.  I apologize to
you, and to other members of support at .  Further replies will be
private, as I originally intended.

However, it was not a slam, it was a polite request.

In this case, the question was not about XMPP accounts, but
Google Apps for Business accounts.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
