Yahoo! Messenger warning

When I opened Yahoo! Messenger, I recieved the following offline message:

ltlbrd4 : is Yahoo President Jay Russell, I am sorry to announce that Yahoo has reached its maximum number of accounts two million. If you would like to keep your account for free send this to everyone on your list. This way we can know which accounts are being used and which accounts we can delete. Send this within 8 days and your account will remain free. Once again I am sincerely sorry that I have to do this. Please start sending. Jay Russell, Yahoo Management Renee: WHOEVER DOESN'T SEND THIS MESSAGE YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DEACTIVATED AND IT WILL COST $10.00 A MONTH TO USE IT! TO SEND 2 EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST.

As you can see, the grammar is not spectacular which raises my suspicions a little.
So does anyone know if its genuine or not?

ignore it, it's based on the chain letter and a totally unorthodox way of informing anyone

Thanks for your answer Stalion. I thought it was a bit strange but thought I'd double check.
