Hi Sander,

Thank you for your response. It is good to apologize when you have made
mistake. It is noble when avoid them and especially for someone like you
who was a co-chair from a community like RIPE, correct me if I am wrong.

To the attention of our co-chairs: if Sander erred and has to render
several apologies, hence humiliating himself, it is because you have failed
to carry out the job you have offered yourself voluntarily to do. As
rightly postulated by Aristotle “horror vacui” (Nature Abhors a Vacuum), it
is your inaction or lack of dynamism and focus in managing the affairs of
RPD which has led Sander to assume your duties.

What a shame! Sit up and do thing right for this community.

Enjoy your week,
