That is an interesting question Warrick

I feel that unsolicited emails that many people are receiving from Larus Limited is very concerning for many reasons. 
But now I am hearing of people getting unsolicited whatsapp messages from Larus Limited as well.

This information is more than likely mined from the WHOIS database which we know is a common practice for companies that use it for unsolicited sales emails and calls to sell Transit.

The nagging question I have is, Why is Larus so invested and spamming people to get votes for Paul Wollner?

As mentioned before, SEACOM / MaroLan failed to remove the respective IRR entries when the customer left and this caused the confusion later down the line when the 3rd party advertised the prefix.

I have nothing against Mark and I feel that he is a strong candidate and I feel that either of us will do a great job. Mark has sat in this position before and I think it is time for new blood.
