[rpd] Declaration of War by Banjamin Ledoh

Fri Dec 7 11:30:50 UTC 2018

Gentleman, I will like to suggest to please calm down and take it easy.


I really understand how easy to come to too much heated discussions, but should be avoided.


Maybe I’m missing if there are personal or business reasons for that, or confrontations among different countries or parts of Africa, but those aren’t relevant to the discussion in this list at all, and only creates more difficulties for the policy process and discourage people from participating.


All that is against the code of conduct. Hopefully the chairs don’t need to apply it, but clearly personal attacks must never be used in the list neither meetings.


If there is a suspicious of something that may be wrong, I think it is totally right to expose it and make it clear and not to create a war at all, but to make sure that even if it is just “false smoke”, the community can take measures to avoid just the smoke and any possible misbehavior.


Please note that I’m not taking any position. I probably talked with both of you, but to be honest, for me is very difficult to remember all the faces and match them to names, so don't take me as against or pro anyone.


Just hoping it helps to calm down.

Dear Benjamin !!!


I take serious exception to your comment, I work in the University and part of my responsibility is to expose my students to the practice of Internet Governance and attending AfriNIC is part of it. Unfortunately, you or any other person does not have the capacity to buy my opinion.


If you are in the business of being sponsored by name withheld to destabilise progressive community, just typical of your kind in the West Africa region. I can see that is why you are supporting a sponsored policy.


ignorant of you, we have not supported the review policy way before Hammamet. Because we saw through the policy, that it is poison and clannishly sponsored.


Attendance to AfriNIC by sponsorship should be applauded. But if you want a war with benefactors of other people, I don't I have a problem with that, you will have the people to contend with.


I will clearly tell you I have been in AfriNIC, i am sure long before you know it. So, your kind cannot intimidate me by no means. When you hit a brick wall you tend to reduce serious business to village square matter. VERY TYPICAL.

Hi Daniel,


It is true that you have been contracted by a certain Foundation (name withheld) to recruit some young Nigerians, whose trips to Hammamet were paid for by the Foundation, to oppose the Review policy during AFRINIC-29 Meeting?


This question to is coming from the fact that there is a rumor going round and generally, there is no smoke without fire.
