Hi Marcus,

> You chose to not  positively impact the history being written for AFRINIC. You now persist in denying AFRINIC community the ability, like other RIRs to enforce accountability, best practices and adopt an INR review policy.
> Why do you want to see responses to the fanciful  points on a policy proposal which you buried long ago?
> This is a  PDP  working group where participants are expected to discuss and provide suggestions and texts to improve proposals. Please bring texts and suggestions.

I have no interest in the policy itself. I don't mind if it passes or fails. But I do want to see Afrinic strong in making its own policy, and for that consensus building has to be done properly, non-consensus has to be recognised, and discussions should be about content, not personal.

When I was a working group chair I have had to declare non-consensus on policies that I thought would be good for the community. In a consensus-based community you don't always get the changes you would like through, but that's the way it is. The default is always to stay with the current policy. That can make it difficult to change things, but it also provides a lot of stability.
