Your statement was just fine. Entirely appropriate thing to

Some mail lists have taken to sending such statements on a
regular basis because the users of list keep changing over
time and it's a useful thing to keep in everyone's mind.

I hope you don't go off the list because some folks took
some things diff than others.  Every now and then, things
get a little bumpy on APD, but on the whole it's a tame and
well-behaved group. And lots of folks benfit from it -- but
only insofar as folks participate.
