Hi Baldwin,

Fair enough, I will move mu concerns on accountability and transparency onto a new thread less folk dodge that bullet.

Puzzled  since the topic on shutdown is really not a technical issue one thinks it should also be moved to discuss so we focus on real technical issues on the rpd list.

Me thinks…

Happy Easter folks

We talk about our governments keeping the internet open, but how well has the board been open to its members and the community? 

If i may, where do we stand with improving Afrinic's accountability? 

What happened to the bottom up process and transparency?

Dear Chair,

I feel unhappy that, instead you appreciate member dissatisfaction, empasis, you instead resort into questioning him. This does not bring our community together ?

For exemple  : 

Best  practise would be that the board consults membership/community  before making statements like "keeping the Internet  open" ....

Dear Arnaud,

 Your statement - "the Board makes decisions unilaterally"
 Kindly provide more information on the unilateral decisions taken by the Board, which are not within its purview.
 Thanks and Regards ..

I am sad to see how AFRINIC is currently managed. There is no restraint, no consideration for the community, the Board makes decisions unilaterally, the CEO answers in the place of the authors of a policy, the staff that starts to produce policy, co-chairs that seem helpless To manage the flow, an individual who takes hostage a whole community, when he talks everything is good, when we talk we are shown code-of-conduct. Oh ! Dear members of the community, I am really sad. This is an observation that engages only me I can deceive, if all goes for the best in the world to Afrinic then all my apologies.

 The authors and PDWG chairs can speak for themselves.  I was speaking as the CEO, attempting to correct some misconceptions.
