I hope you received my message about this issue. I wanted everyone to know that we do appreciate your understanding about this issue. Unfortunately, we have to be very protective about the name Beethoven.com to protect our ability to serve in promoting classical music.
As for your email address, of course you're free to use it in any way you see fit. Whenever firstname.lastname@example.org
appears anywhere, it's obvious that it's an email address and provides a distinction from our company directly. Feel free to post it anywhere you want (in fact, we do appreciate the marketing it provides, which, frankly, is one reason for providing the email service, obviously).
Again, we know your heart was in the right place and we appreciate that. Thank you again for your understanding.
