When you alluded to some "So called Management", was I the one
resorting to foul language? I was just trying to let you know that
some people are reading, and they can THINK. Why not take Randy's advise?

I enrolled, but dropped out of the Ph.D. class ;)

No matter the question you want to pose ... show me a solution and I
will advocate it. Again, I joined by asking you to light the candle
and not curse the darkness. You have worked in AfriNIC and know by now
where policies are needed. Why not propose some policy and save us
this rigmarole?

We should not run AfriNIC like some African states, where executive
power does things, instead of the laid down rules. In fact, we should
resist just that. I am a firm believer in the fact that Government
should be of laws, rather than of men.

I am assuming that all the other issues I responded to, are now
rested, within the confines of your privileged position of being
sheltered in the organization before.
