Yes It's easy to say when it suits you, my network, my rules. Don't tell me how
to run my network. As long as there is about the relationship between you
and your customer Afrinic has absolutely nothing to do there, but when you
use resources that belong to a community for which Afrinic is the
guarantor, please,
don't come out with this argument.

The resources made available by Afrinic are resources allocated based
on the needs
and if those needs disappear resources should be restored to Afrinic. They
are not sold resources, but allocated (made available). So the argument don'
t tell me how to run my network does not fit in this case, you must comply
with Afrinic requirements , otherwise the service will be interrupted to you
. It's that simple. but you are turning around the bush.
