The problem is not (really) that you forwarded an invitation - you  
made it seem like the official invitation (as written by Mikrotik)  
was sent with AfNOG written all over it. I actually had to go to  
<http://mum.mikrotik.com/2007/NG/info> to verify that it's not the  
case. For example, you mention that AfNOG attendees get to go for  
free, yet according to that page they don't (unless you mean they  
don't have to travel to Nigeria all over again). You mention that the  
meetings are being held in the same hotel, yet that wasn't a  
coordinated plan between Mikrotik and AfNOG.

In future, if you are forwarding an announcement, just forward the  
text of the announcement _as_is_. If you must add your comments, make  
some effort to differentiate it from the actual announcement.

If the said announcement is commercial - it'd probably be a good idea  
if you didn't forward it.

Also as an aside, please try not to send HTML to the list. Most mail  
clients can't handle it and some (like my current one) have the bad  
habit of maintaining whatever format of e-mail I receive.
