++1 Sami.Thanks to Sami for this call to order,
It's really necessary to keep working under some global standards.I am among those who respect the single rules laid down and for me, one who deviates the rule must be sanctioned (unsubscribe from the mailing list, for eg.).In response to this call that the co-chair launched, I put in  Cc  the 2 other appropriate mailing lists quoted by Sami, for pursue there  our rich current  discussions.All discussions on the RDP mailing list must be linked to the pending policies that were the subject of discussions during the F2F meetings in Gaborone, in such that these policies either improved or withdrawn by the author. In short, let's reframe our discusions on the right Avenue or Podium, and  in the respect of each other opinions as usual.

 Objet : [rpd] Essence of the RPD Mailing List

Dear AfriNIC PDWG Members,

It has become necessary to remind the list members of the essence of the Resource Policy Discussion, RPD, mailing list as well as the need to be professional in the course of policy discussions.

We have to respect other opinions and be tolerant of views that are different. By reasoning out the policy issues, we will together produce policies that are in the best interest of our region and the global Internet.

Other discussion should take place in the relevant discussion platform. As a reminder, the following discussion lists are available
community-discuss at For community discussion of AFRINIC-related matters (Open to everyone)
members-discuss at For member discussion of AFRINIC-related members (Restricted to AFRINIC members)

We are a growing community and everyone's cooperation is needed in setting some minimum standards for discussions. If we allow ourselves lose control of our emotions, discussions will drift in the wrong direction. As PDWG Co-chair we will exercise our mandate to ensure constructive discussion within the PDWG (on the RPD mailing list and in face to face meetings). We believe the community is mature enough to conduct high-quality discussions and come up with good policies for the benefit of Africa.
