Dear PD Working Group,

Please read Inbetween the lines. I see and have been quietly observing a
pattern here.
It looks like the board chair and his friends are planning a grand plot
here. Quite intelligently planned.

Chairs Recalled: Board Chair and 3 of his friends needed to execute the
plot . To recall PDWG chair. You need Board Chair and 3 friends. Hummm..

Policy passed by the WG but Board chair and his friends didn't like it.
They decided to say the chairs never sent the mail cos they know they can't
pull a super majority on the board so it better killed. We all remember the
advice from Ashok a while ago on the board prerogative policy.

Ashok and board chair?

Co-Chairs informed me and us all here that they did. What going on here ?
Even if they did not the documents are available in the public domain.

Appeal Committee was next. Board Chair again. If there is an appeal that
you want to influence. Ask one AC member to resign and suddenly no more
quorum. Then Board Chair and his friends are replacing them all.

Now Co Chair replacement: Board chair wants to appoint in conjunction with
friends and Madhvi.
I remember, I once read something on this mailing list about Madhvi..
But by they way it's now
Ashok, Board Chair and Madhvi(SM)...I see a pattern.

We now know what to do
I rest my case.

Before I go..

I hope AFRINIC would recover one day.
But I must empasis that it's never the prerogative of the board chair to
appoint PDWG chair neither is it that of the board. It should never happen
if we all are awake.

The board chair and friends are trying hard to circumvent the community in
all the process.
I see a pattern..

Bye for now.
