I’m afraid after it took less than two hours to destroy whois records and
more than 2.5 days to restore them, the definition of “as soon as operationally
possible” is not an acceptable measure.

AFRINIC set a very bad precedent here and I believe that this policy
should be a casualty of that action.

Will you still say that when it is your customers that are down for 2.5 days
while AFRINIC ignores your injunction?
