We prove a conjecture of Yood regarding the nonexistence of submultiplicative norms on the algebra C(T) of all continuous functions on a topological space T which admits an unbounded continuous function. We also exhibit a quotient of C(T) which does not admit a nonzero positive linear functional. Finally, it is shown that the algebra L(X) of all linear operators on an infinite-dimensional vector space X admits no nonzero submultiplicative seminorm.
