I can confirm that I received a solicitation email for a proxy, as far
as I can tell it appears to be from someone able to obtain email
addresses from the Afrinic db - if it had come from other sources I
would have expected other contacts within Limelight to receive a copy
(none did) or it would have been sent a role account (it was a
personal address). However my address is fairly well know so it could
have been obtained via another source (such as this mailing list).
