Hi Tutu:

You are so much under estimate your very own people, there is over 60-70%
of AFRICAN are not connected, and they do not need to be connected to IPv4
internet, they can start with IPv6 internet, in which all the major site
today, google, facebook, youtube are supporting IPv6, and I believe if
there are enough people behind IPv6 only network, more and more provider
will provide IPv6 access in a rapid rate, so no, you don't need IPv4 to
make IPv6 work.

However, taking away an asset from company without backing of a court is
not only dangers but also unlawful, police can take you away for illegal
activity, but police has no rights to take away your house, only court can
do that.

Don't even mention AFRINIC are just a bookkeeper not even a police.

African should care about IPv6, and in fact, at time of ending of IPv4, and
rapid growth of IPv6, AFRICAN is seriously the only place on this planet
can start fresh with IPv6 only network, and we as company happy to provide
IPv6 training in case any needs, and help you deploy dual stack network,
there are few and few customer will need IPv4. So it is a big NO, for
saying that AFRICAN don't care about IPv6, every operator here will tell
you they care about it.

But last, I will not future respond to you if you are not discussing the
policy in question, rather making personal attacks.

with regards.
