Sorry my apologies for taking this long to get round to answering this.

Well I had thought there wasn't one in place but good to know there is a
policy in place.

Best regards

Hi all,

Well lets not confuse silence with agreement and seeing the unpleasant cant really blame some for keeping quiet.

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.

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

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

Unless I have missed your comment completely, in which case I apologise.
