<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:12.0pt">Your recent post to the owasp linkedin group seems to be a lead generation survey for Sonatype. While these have their place throughout industry, it's not something we promote through owasp channels. We've run
 into similar scenarios in the past with other groups that want to be promoted through owasp and want to have their information behind a subscription or email submission wall.<u></u><u></u></p>

<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:12.0pt">You of course are very close to OWASP so I wanted to reach out and ask about your thoughts on this before taking any actions on that message.
