Looking back in history, I see my signatures on the release
announcements included a link to Syndicomm when I was working there, and
as you see below, there's a link to mozilla.org now (my current
employer). But that's what's always in my signature, and I just didn't
think to turn it off or change it.
But yes, it's probably best if we keep commercial references out of our
official announcements unless they're related to the announcement.
