It's certainly not necessary from anybody for whom English is not a
first language -- and that's usually pretty easy to guess based on
domains and personal names.

There are people (not many in this group) who grew up speaking English
and really ought to apologize for their writing -- but they never do.

So a good rule of thumb is:

If you think maybe you need to apologize for your English, you don't

If it never occurred to you that you need to apologize, you might.
