Many thanks Nishal for last email. You have written well.
I haven't seen any specific reason why Andrew will predetermine what report
should or not be sent by the Co-chairs to the Board. The procedure posted
earlier by Omo was clear enough. With due respect, I personally think the
attacks the Co-chairs to assume there is no rough consensus  on this policy
by raising dust and accussing them before a procedural report is sent
amounts to bullying.
Additionally, if most members of the community aren'traising issues with
the last call with there silence, it probably suggest the community is
favouring the outcome of this policy. Like the adage goes... "Silence means
consent". If you have issues with it, deal with the appeal committee that
has been set up for arbitration and conflict resolution.
AFRINIC PDP is bigger than one individual. We have much to gain from
respecting laid down procedure.

Like I always note, we are young folks that has much to learn from the
community. Kindly do not compound the learning process.
