I’ve been on this list for a long time… I don’t recall any of the co-chair requests to the board for ratification being sent to this list, yet you say this has always happened?

Is my memory so faulty?

I don’t know why they didn’t receive it. If you feel this is a relevant question, then by all means, please pursue whatever investigation you feel is necessary with the appropriate authorities.

Yes, I do. What other action would be appropriate under such circumstance?

No, but I also do not forget the public discussion and the determination of the co-chairs. I have not made any attempt to influence what the board will do with the correspondence once they receive it, merely asked that it be resent to them and to the community so that it can be verified to have been received and then dealt with appropriately.

No, I have not forgotten that, either. Again, I have not called for the board to take any specific action with respect to either policy, but I do not see any reason that should preclude a resending of the correspondence.

This borders on ad hominem, sir and is not an accurate or valid representation of my statements or my feelings towards AFRINIC and the AFRINIC community.

Anyone who sees bad motives behind what I have done here is mistaken in their perceptions.
