Frankly Noah I prefer to support an appeal committee made up from Afrinic
How can the board make such a proposal, to involve third parties in the
internal appeal process in our region, thereby communicating an inability
to resolve our internal concerns.
Without a confident AFRINIC, we can not go far. If board feels incapable
to lead an independent RIR , there is an easy solution which is to resign
and have other continue building the Regional Internet Registry
I do not support this intrusive ToR.
