[anti-spam-wg] If it's announced 'on' RIPE.net it must be true...

Seems at least one network believes that 'announcements' carried on a
RIPE website mean the announcement must be real. Why RIPE is carrying
a fake announcement posted by a spammer is beyond me, is there
somebody there who can delete joe-jobs and/or spam from the list and
thus from what RIPE subsequently publishes?
I'm sure if the same spammer posted an announcement saying RIPE has
been acquired by APNIC and all RIPE IPs are to be recalled on Dec 1,
someone I hope would ensure such 'announcement' is promptly
deleted... could that same someone delete the fake announcement below
