[rpd] [Community-Discuss] Larus foundation fellowship

Actually – let me state categorically – I did NOT say that it was a comprehensive campaign of lobbying.

I said they MAY have used the foundation for lobbying – can I say that for certainty? No.

I did however say that lobbying – is part and parcel of internet policy anywhere – and I see no problem with that – nor do I believe that this document was as biased as everyone is making out – and I believe the attacks against Lazarus for producing what I view as a pretty accurate summary of the comments on the lists.

Why is it acceptable for a group of people to show up in Mauritius wearing *t-shirts* that deliberately are designed to graphically lobby for a policy – and hand those out in a lobbying attempt – with pretty provocative and unfounded statements printed on those shirts – but – its not ok to produce a summary of what *was* said on the lists and publically in a room?

And yes Wafa – Alain – and others – I am looking at you in those shirts

Hi all!
Gathering and filtering public debates in the purpose to "guide" newcomers!
Great, but I'm really aware as such "education materials" was
dedicated to "selected" people, under NDA or not, just before another
Thanks for the "contributors" for "educating" those receiving grants.
As Andrew says, it's just a "comprehensive" campaign of lobbying. It's
a dangerous step towards the trick to "lout resources" and "help" the
community owner, when issues raise. Same behaviors in mine, oïl sectors!

Inacceptable, if AfriNIC community continues to have faith in its core
mission and objectives, which are not to sell by to share for the
benefits of Internet in Africa.
