No you do not make such claim Bill.
What I do claim is that the anti-shutdown proposal (even if AfriNIC pdp is
wrong place to fix it) elevate the topic of shutdown even more. It is also
not the only thing. Other campaigner have been at this work of fighting
shutdown for some time.

There is part of this community that see nothing but evil in the proposal.
And it not fully about the proposal. It is about one of the author. Those
people will find justification to deny that this proposal had impact (as is
already happening)
