I don't think anyone said that or wants that. If I am mistaken, would 
you point to the message where somebody said that?

Doesn't the RSA already allow Afrinic to reclaim addresses acquired 

It sounds like at least one author/proponent agreed that a minor change 
to the language would make it clearer that any address space in use 
would not be reclaimed. As written, even if an application for addresses 
had said they would be used for a data center, but instead they were 
used for connecting users, the address holder would simply have to show 
how they were actually being used.

places would be unserved. In other places, it might take weeks.

Are you saying that you have fellow Nigerians following this list just 
so they can get a free trip to AIS? Or do you mean that your countrymen 
are opposing this proposal because they want a free trip to AIS?

Or do you mean "following them" literally, in a menacing manner?
