Be reinsured El, AFRINIC is not going to **alienate** its Database away unless 
for activities in line with its mission or for research purposes. From where 
the discussion come from (the WHOIS cleanup policy) my previous comment were 
more into the ability for members/community to free and openly change the 
contain of the WHOIS.
