I fully agree with you, BUT this is not the point here. The point is,
that there are AfriNIC members, who want to be able to handle their
complaints in an appropriate way and they can not because they are
getting their complaints to their personal mailbox. They have
spamfilters installed on their personal mailbox which is absolutely
okay. But it is not okay for a abuse@ mailbox.

So I think we should not argue about offering a dedicated place for
abuse contact information. As I heard everybody agreed on that at the
AfriNIC meeting.
