I find your statement of being beyond cheers and tears a bit rude
considering the fact that it was my first post.

We cannot run a perfect system. You were not there to know you spoke for 5
mins while other candidates spoke for 3 mins. The community was
sophisticated enough to accept this in good faith.

In my post, I equally cautioned against extreme details. If I may ask ...
how many broken things needed fixing post Gambia?

The accurate principle is again ... Respect the wish of the majority in the
community, and listen carefully to the minority, not to tell them you moved

My comments did not separate sweet grapes from sour grapes, but extended
Adiels intervention. Note that a number of comments are grape driven, and
this is visible to even blind eyes.

Please respect my views, even if they are out of sync, or I am backward or
not as intelligent as you.

We are now beyond cheers or tears for winners and losers but are dealing
with issues going forward.  Fortunately or unfortunately I was not in
Gambia so I will never know what happened there.  The community deserves to
know the accurate principles about its operating environment including
proxies and all. What is coming out is some people are emotionally
declaring the system of proxies as the enemy yet it is just an instrument
which the community should manage. Lets understand what it is all about and
decide how to control it in the future. If the system was abused then let
us close the loopholes. This debate should no longer be construed be about
siding for or against a particular group of candidates in the last
election. Lets move on and debate issues objectively as Afrinic is greater
than individuals.
