Dear R Admins,

I received an unsolicited e-mail from BlueInference as an R user. Does it mean that R that our e-mails (and names) is sharing it's user database with third parties without our consent? Or perhaps the BlueInference guys are using an e-mail address miner to get our contact details?

[SNIP] Dear Gorden Jemwa,

As a fellow R user, I am sure you agree with me that R is a dear gift from the R-project community that should enjoy broad use. Towards that end, we’ve built a software solution directed at the very large community of Microsoft Office users, called Inference for Office. It combines the powerful data-analysis capabilities of R with the familiar and flexible word-processing and data-preparation features of Microsoft Word and Excel. We are making Inference for Office available for free to R users at educational and non-profit research institutions. A free trial is available for everyone.

With Inference for Office, you can assemble all the elements of an R data-analysis project (text, data, R objects, R code) into dynamic documents. These dynamic documents can then be executed in real-time to create results documents containing all the output and graphics. If Inference for Office is of no interest to you, please disregard this message and accept our humble apologies for having bothered you.

If Inference for Office sounds like it might useful, you can obtain additional information by visiting our website and viewing a two-minute screencast overview of Inference for Office:


While you're there, you can also download a free trial of Inference for Office

To your success,
