Hi Noah,
While sharing emails like this is interesting, I’d suggest leaving the emotion and profanity out of the email. It will add to your credibility and stop people just saying, there he goes on a rant…

The reality as we all know is that anyone in Africa can become a member of AFRINIC and micro membership fess are only $1000 – can you can get a /23, not just a /24.

Since the internet is already a global eco system where everyone needs to work together, there are already organisations like ISOC etc  to who do promote this freedom they speak of.

Education is key, we all know this.

Are most of you still being coerced by the Lu Heng's wannabe RIR the NRS to join them.

I mean, reading the bullshit in the below email from one of the NRS representatives, a one Fiona Mwangi, clearly shows that Lu Heng is stopping at nothing to pretend and fake it that he has legitimate customers in the region by dashing out free /24's and some 1 month free VPS access and free Cloud services.

Is this how Lu Heng intends to justify that CIL has real end-users in the AFRINIC service region because that would be broad day light deceit and dishonesty.

Who the heck provides free /24 IPv4 block, free VPS and free Cloud Services.

Talk of bullshit and hamburg.

Dear Sir,
I am Fiona  from the Number Resources Society (NRS). The NRS is a gathering of  members who have the goal of preserving the stability of the internet. IP addresses are one of the most important resources for Internet related businesses.
The NRS’s core beliefs and values are an unlimited, unrestricted, and united Internet that is based on a global free market and enterprise based on the principles of transparency and accountability. The establishment of the Society is an advocacy of the Internet’s stability, which can only be achieved by individuals, private companies, and ISPs having freedom in managing their networks and recognizing the Internet as one universal resource comprised of many individual networks each operated by and according to the wishes of its own management.
With this, we are inviting your company to become part of the NRS and join us in this noble cause of protecting the internet. Through your participation, we are one step closer to achieving our goal of improving the status quo of the Internet.
Your membership to the NRS will entitle you to our membership benefits, provided by NRS contributors:
- /24 IPv4 address lease for your organization with lease fee waived provided by one of our NRS contributor (terms and conditions apply, including all RIR policy requirements and provider's accept use policy). Currently, /24 IP addresses are pegged at a price of USD$2,500 annually.
-Free cloud space for your organization through another of our NRS contributors.
-One month free VPS from one our NRS contributors.
-A vast networking platform of various stakeholders, telecommunication and IT companies, in addition to Internet Governance training and workshops.
