You wrote this ... "I know for sure some AFRINIC hostmasters did their
best to prevent this but then their efforts are over ridden by so
called management ..." here  Is "So
Called Management" a normal grammatical construct?

Go and read my exploits and position with the now dead and buried
Academic policy, co-authored with Andrew Alston, who is now also a
Board member. We crooned, begged, preached and populated the mailing
lists took several mikes at Lusaka, Abidjan and lately Djobouti. Wake
up! There is no room for selective Amnesia here.

The Board approves policies, not allocations. Show me where in the
rule, it tasks the Board with approving allocations?

> If yes why?

Not Applicable.

>> What policies framework was followed to approve this block?

Ask our hostmasters after the next hostmasters' report at the next
meeting in MU. If you want them to seek approval from you, propose a
policy in that regard.

understanding of our policies here, rather the deliberate attempt to
pull down the house.

Perhaps the community should be asking you if it is ... Sour grapes?

If you have the slightest idea about how we can keep African Addresses
in Africa for the sake of Africans, bring it on. I will support you to
high heavens.
