Badru, I can no longer refrain from commenting at your constant berating,
non-constructive posts, waste of bandwidth, time and being critical of the
board, community and its processes - something that you were in charge of
until just short of a year ago and then still on the board until the last
elections (6 months ago)- so this is something that you are very
responsible for. 

You are constantly making accusations against members of the board in this
public forum and with non-public knowledge and then plead NDA when asked
for fact to backup your allegations.

You are now alluding to your prowess at running a multi million dollar
company, I refer you back to the Lusaka AGMM where AFRINIC, under your
leadership ran at a loss and the financials were late. When questioned
about what you were going to do to rectify the issue, the response was, we
don't need to do anything different. Funny thing those financials have
always been a sticky point recently... 

maybe where there is smoke there is fire, so let's stop this non-sense,
we're IT people, like logs, facts don't lie, so lets get these current,
correctly  audited financials and see what status AFRINIC has been left

I am not interested in a slinging match, so lets keep the mails on this
list factual and constructive

Another valid purely subjective view.  One would have to understand all
the dynamics but that would be very difficult in a world of limited
transparency thus your subjective view is based on the pre-edited
information that you have access to.

So if one really understands the causes as opposed to gueses based on a
particular agenda we could be having additive discussions.  My emails try
to be additive but if you look at the responses from the executive they
never dissapoint at dragging the dialogue down. They have earned a record
for consistency.

Thank you. Just like many others I have a vested interest in the good of
the community and will try my best.

On the contrary it is the root of the problem. It all starts from the lack
of order and dedication.  We leave in a world of last minute delivery. (on
this one trust me I know.)  So we are ticking boxes without focusing on
the core.

We all do.  I hope your patience has the resilience needed for the current
modus operandus.
