Well, James, as I read that last paragraph above, Mr Ahmed requests those
who have «erroneously received» his posting to notify him in that event.
Thus I presume you are within your rights to contact him whether or no
receipt of the posting can be considered erroneous. As the paragraph does
not explicitly prohibit mentioning LibO in sucjh a notification, I also
presume that you would be within your rights to do so. The above, of
with the caveat that I am hardly an expert in Indian, Singaporean, Thai,
Malaysian, or UK legal practices....
That's all well and good - but - contacting him is simply _wrong_ IMO.
