I do agree. However we need to accept that those contributions are largely on legal / policy issues.

I am a legal / policy person and the views expressed on this policy regarding the RIR system and the legal and policy issues are without foundation. As I am a legal / policy person I don’t presume to comment on network operations.

Also agreed. However there have been objections from people regarding alleged negative impacts on network operations. In this case I think it is reasonable that the objector either:

identifies the *actual* network they operate; or
acknowledges that their objection is based on a hypothetical network and not actually based in reality (academics have great ideas too); or
admits that they are a paid shill for someone else.
