Vint did not make any statement about anti-shutdown as being discussed in the UN.

His statement was that politicizing IP allocations is a very bad idea. I agree with him about this.

I said as much at the microphone during the discussion of this proposal.

We must separate the flaws in this proposal from the concept of preventing or opposing internet shutdowns in general.

The former received condemnation from Vint. The latter did not.
