Hi Bert,

We are following the mailing list guidelines to the best of our
knowledge (e.g.
It's our belief (as shared by others) that advertising our courses
falls under the general aegis of helping people learn R.

Our goal is for RStudio to be a net positive to R the community. We
support the R foundation, R user groups, do a lot of teaching for
free, and develop a lot of open-source software like the RStudio IDE,
shiny, ggplot2 and devtools. Public courses help fuel our development
and hence benefit the R community.
