You are entitled to your opinion, to be certain.

I’m sorry you feel that way.
> It's not a necessity that you have to comment if you have nothing constructive to add its acceptable for you to be silent. It amazing the way you come to our african community and belittle expectations you would not accept in your home community Arin.
There are many things on which I do not comment. I am well aware of my right and ability to remain silent if I feel it is best.
We can agree to disagree about the constructive nature of my comments.
> Your attack on me Shows the limited depth you might have beyond routing I might be wrong here but that's the displayed perception.
I’m sorry you took it as an attack. It was intended as a constructive criticism and an annotation. Not as an attack.
> As I suggested please read the archives. The whole governance issue comes from the last meeting and the emails on commitments are also online.
No… The governance committee was requested a year before the last meeting and no action was taken on it after that request until the last meeting. That is one of the reasons it was such a hot topic at the last meeting.
> To request definite timelines does not deserve your unsolicited attack.
I did not attack the request for definite timelines, I supported it. Did you simply react to my message without reading it?
> I think this community has had enough of your condescending comments. I'm sure many silent voices will share the same view.
I’m sorry you took my comments as condescending. It has never been my intent to condescend to anyone in the community and there are many members of the community that I hold in quite high esteem.
> I for one respect your IP knowledge but you have no ground to try and lecture me on building or running organisations.
Nor would I presume to do so.
> So stop trying to derail us. We have a community to support and build and we will not take your nonsense anymore.
Again, you are ascribing motives and intents that simply do not exist behind my actions.
Please be specific as to who this “we” is and as to what “nonsense” you will not take. Please also be specific as to what “we” intend to do toward that end.
> Afrinic is a strong organisation built by the community belonging to the community. We might have differences in approach but we definately do not need your un educated poison in the mix.
I’m sorry you feel that way.
> I ask you maintain your input in our community on a purely constructive and additive tone.
It has never been my intent to do otherwise, but you are entitled to your point of view.
Interesting choice of words under the circumstances.
