Dear All, and in particular Lucilla,

I would appreciate if you refrain from sending unsolicited emails such
as the below:

Dear Ultimate Linux Solutions Team,


I hope this email finds you well. 

My name is Lucilla, and I work for LARUS Foundation. It is a
non-profit organization that was established in
2018. Our work consists of striving to increase public engagement in
the process of Internet policy development to make sure the
Internet infrastructure remains free and fair for the foreseeable future. 

There is an important election on 4th June 2021, for the AFRINIC
Board election. 

I am sending you this email today, to ask you to vote for Mr.
Paul Wollner, who is running for seat 5 in the
board election. As we all know, voting is how we can make a
positive change in our communities. The e-voting will be open
on 20th May 2021. 

Currently, AFRINIC is in a huge mess, the community needs to take action
and change this difficult situation for the better.
After all, our common goal is to make the internet stable in Africa. 

I know Mr. Paul Wollner, he is a highly qualified candidate with
multiple experiences in the Internet industry. With his expertise and
commitment, having him as a chairperson can only contribute to
the improvement of AFRINIC’s services. Also, Mr. Wollner lived, studied,
and worked in South Africa, that said,
he has the sufficient baggage and is aware of
the specificities of our continent, in terms of
Internet technicalities, legislations and needs. 

I ask for your kind support to become changemakers. 

Thank you for your time and consideration. 


Best regards, 



Kind Regards,
