Can anyone verify this? This has been circulating around on the internet chat rooms, but I can't find a link to verify if this is true or not...

Given the current extraordinary market conditions, NASDAQ has
determined to suspend the bid price and market value of publicly held
shares requirements through Friday, January 16, 2009. In that regard,
on October 16, 2008, NASDAQ filed an immediately effective rule change
with the Securities and Exchange Commission, such that companies will
not be cited for any new concerns related to bid price or market value
of publicly held shares deficiencies. These rules will be reinstated
on Monday, January 19, 2009.
As a result of the suspension, all companies presently in the
compliance process will remain at that same stage of the process.
However, if such a company is presently subject to being delisted for
concerns not related to the bid price or market value of publicly held
shares requirements, it will continue in that process with respect to
those other concerns. Over the next few days, NASDAQ staff will
contact each company affected by this suspension to discuss the
specific impact to the company. NASDAQ will continue to monitor
companies to determine if they regain compliance with these
requirements during the suspension.
NASDAQ believes that this temporary suspension will allow companies to
focus on running their businesses, rather than satisfying market-based
requirements that are largely beyond their control in the current
environment. Moreover, this temporary suspension should help to
restore investor confidence in affected NASDAQ companies as the
suspension will allow investors to make decisions without considering
the likelihood of a very near-term delisting. In the coming months,
NASDAQ will continue to monitor the affect that market conditions are
having on the operation of our rules.
