Why are we talking about the bad being bad. And declining proposals
because it is not solving all our problems within one blink of an eye.

Why are we not talking about helping the good people getting better,
solving their abuse issues internally? Helping people that are willed to
change something?

We are always prefer to do nothing because we are just looking at the
bad things.

If only 15 African ISPs are using this new Object (which one ever will
be elected) and it helps them, it was worth doing it. Because these 15
ISPs start making a difference, because they are doing something and
changing something.

What I do not understand is, that RIRs are not able to punish their
members for being bad, but we all are able to punish the ones that want
to be good by doing nothing for them.
