[rpd] [members-discuss] why to me, AFRINIC

I am finding this amusing now. Normal mortals like me would typically
follow the developers guidance and stick with supported software -

If this was really installed in 2014, all I can say is please try not to
spam me again.  I am quite often checking mail on my mobile and having
'00s of unsolicited mail is a pain.

Thank you!
