Hi Jane,

Your comments below amounts to a severe breach of the Code of conduct (https://afrinic.net/code). Some community members have also pointed it out.

In previous communications made on this list, we have informed you about our whistleblowing mechanism (https://afrinic.net/whistleblowing), which is the process we have availed to report any malpractice with facts.

The defamatory allegations will be removed from the list ASAP as they do not belong here.

I advise you to retract/apologize for the allegations made.

Hello Jane,

A very important thing which I always bear in mind is that this list requires reasonable and sensible discussions.

It is true that different people may have different opinions, but we need to respect each other’s way of thinking. Sometimes certain tones are just improper and should not be condoned.

Also, I think it is not necessary to stir up fatuous allegations and chaos in this forum. To show respect, one shall always use their real identity instead of hiding under the guise of an alias or pseudonyms. I think that is also an act of respect; being genuine is imperative to a meaningful discussion. This way orderliness will be a culture.

I believe everyone’s contribution to this list is valuable if we have respect and rationality.

Also, I think it is reasonable for the board and staff to stand up to Ronald on the subject he raised.

Kind regards,

>From Ronald’s reply, it’s clear that Madhvi, AFRINIC’s Senior IP Resources Specialist was involved in this entire scandal. She tried to help Ernst to conceal this entire thing and it really confuses me why such a person shall still be in the position of “Senior IP Resources Specialist” when it’s obvious that she doesn’t even respect policy herself.

It is just as if someone who is in the position of a security guard; he knows someone who illegally break into the place but still keeps his mouth shut.

Shall this person be still in this position? Isn’t it this whole thing absurd? I have never seen anything more corrupt and darker than this.
