It may have escaped your attention Jordi, but I think that AFRINIC has
some rather bigger fish to fry at the moment.

More to the point, if I email you offline and tell you that I happen to
know of a great vacation spot in Barcelona that you may want to try out
some day, are you going to report me to the Spanish GDPR police?

At what point does the over-agressive interpretation and/or enforcement
of GDPR, either in Europe or in Mauritius, become nothing by a bad joke,
deserving of nothing but scorn and ridicule?

GDPR was written to respond to over-the-top absurdities like the revelations
about Facebook and their unholy relationship with Cambridge Analytica. It
was *not* written so that you could rat me out to the GDRP police when I
tell you and three other friends about my favorite restaurant.

>Also, it is against the usage terms of the whois and CoC.

Apparently, lots of things are against the CoC. I have been pointlessly
harassed merely because it is -alleged- that speaking ill of the Mauritian
judiciary is a violation of the CoC.

If we're all going to become bickering lawyers when it comes to such
small things, then I'd like to now assert *my* rights under both the
the United States First Amendment and also the entirely clear provisions
of the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 19,
to say whatever I damn well please about the Mauritian judiciary, and
without any further interference or improper chastisments on the part
of AFRINIC staff members who aren't lawyers but who nontheless like to
pretend that they are.


As regards to the WHOIS Terms & Conditions, show me the part that you
think was violated, and I'll show you how it doesn't mean what you
apparently think it means.
