I know I've sometimes expressed concerns about Ken Stubbs association with ICANN and how I wondered if that created a conflict of interest at the time that he headed up Afilias's (successful) application for the .info registry... but... I think this virus-laden message I received today was probably sent unwittingly from your computer, and I just want to advise you and the members of this list who may also be in your address book that you seem to have a virus Ken which is sending out very plausible messages to people making them think they are about to lose their e-mail accounts for improper use and tempting them to 'open up' the accompanying document. A phone call to my e-mail provider confirmed that this message purporting to come from them was not from them at all. So please be careful if any of you receive a message like this one below:
