Now that we are getting dialogue. I’m hearing that we want a review on the policy in place ???
Would an ammendment of the new policy to cater for those objecting be a better use of resources??

I for one will support the policy because there is no such policy to deal with such a scenario in the first place
I have no problem with your views, but I think you may be confused.
There IS a policy in place: https://www.afrinic.net/library/policies/697-ipv4-soft-landing-policy
This is a suggestion to amend the existing soft landing policy and making it more restrictive.
I have a few issues with the existing policy, but I think it is a reasonable compromise in the circumstances.
My objection is to adding further restrictions, as is proposed in the -bis proposal.
and the longer we stay without one the more vulnerable we become.
Actually we have one in place, so I am not sure I understand your point.
So I like to think I see the logic in the arguments for the proposal however there is s greater danger in having NO measure or policy in place rather than have a perfect one in place when it is too late.
Well this is actually what is being discussed here: we have a measure and policy in place right now. This is a proposal to refine it further. I have yet to see a justification I can accept for the need for such further refinement.
Unless I have missed your comment completely, in which case I apologise.
