Hi Paul,
Thanks for your email, brother.

...while reading your numerous long emails, i still
 don't understand why you seem to essentially
behaving in support of a rioting activity started against both this RIR &
the whole INRS (Internet
Numbers Registry System - RFC7020).

"The term interim order refers to an order issued
by a court during the pendency of the litigation.
It is generally issued by the Court *to ensure Status
 quo*. The rationale for such orders to be issued by
 the Courts is best explained by the Latin legal
maxim "Actus curiae neminem gravabit" which,
translated to English, stands for "an act of the
court shall prejudice no one". Therefore, to ensure
 that none of the interests of the parties to the
litigation are harmed, the court may issue an
interim order."

> The meaning of interim isn't really difficult.
Please see above, brother.

> Of relevance is that an interim order has effect.

It's meant to maintain a kind of status quo; while
trying to protect both parties.

...i understand that, even in war times, there is a
thing called "rules"; but, really, who usually care?

Paul, you wrote such a long email, after that our
common brother replied to your email with an URI
containing a simple definiting of a word which
appeared in your email...

How come that you reply...with such a long email,
full of guesses? :'-(

> The fact is that right now and until the court makes a further decosopm

You couldn't play in both sides, brother :'-(

...the opposite camp would defend against any  adversary attacks; with
their means, and you can
 not, really, play on behalf of your adversaries :-)

And, about the purpose please, wisely choose
your camp! i mean, it's not too late, though...

Brother you certainly remember the story of court
 order served to prevent AfriNIC to use any of their
bank accounts...

Are you really celebrating victory before the end
of that machiavelous war?

Please, tell the rioters to don't try to *sell* this
RIR's service region IPv4 pool for out of region
use; before having shutdowned the RIR, *bought*
its community and fully replaced the global INRS...

...so! there is still a way around; as the MU's 2001  company act is not
silent on that topic. But, you
should keep in mind the spirit of *interim orders*.

Various types of coup could be orchestrated by
an adversary party; and any curious observer, of
 AfriNIC's actual experienced challenges, might
easily understand what is at stake and who are
those who contribute to support what appears
to be the really dangerous party at time...

...i thaught that the very AfriNIC's RM which is
pouring huge amount of money in attempting to
 destroy a non profit company which enriches it;
 would have been recognizant enough to invest
back in building some needed open Internet
Protocol based infrastructures accross Africa...

...and perhaps to lead IPv6 deployment accross
AfriNIC's service region? :'-(

Question: If an LIR doesn't have an ASN, isn't that
a red signal (no BGP network) about its intent to
deploy no single infrastructure within the region?

Anyone willing to address this *problem*, through
the PDWG (Policy Development Working Group),
can freely join me in co-authoring a DPP (Draft
Policy Proposal) to be submitted soon.

A normal LIR (Local Internet Registry) holding
such a huge amount of IPv4 resources would
have been a natural source of various investments
within the region associated with the RIR (Regional
 Internet Registry) which allocated those Internet
number resources. But that very AfriNIC's RM
seems to prefer to waste its money, gained in
exploiting (out of region) those IPv4 resources,
to fight AfriNIC; while attempting to corrupt this
RIR's community, the other AfriNIC's RMs and the
entire INRS' community... :'-(

...*investing*, an apparently unlimited budget, in
numerous litigations against a non profit, while no
 record of infrastructural investment accross that
RIR's service region seems to exist...

As i might have been wrong from the beginning...
then, please, brother feel free to correct me.

Remain blessed!
