[rpd] Summary of Proposal Policy Compliance Dashboard AFPUB-2021-GEN-003-DRAFT02

Hello all,

Personally, I disagree with the decision of the board to pass this policy
because it subjects resource members to the monitoring of AFRINIC. The
Policy Compliance Dashboard, although it is just for "policy compliance",
this is still surveillance by AFRINIC. This is a direct invasion of privacy
that disregards the confidentiality of businesses between resource members
and AFRINIC. If AFRINIC is adamant in promoting openness and transparency,
there are more ways than one to promote such, without monitoring the
resource members. AFRINIC is not a dictator that needs to monitor its
members 24/7.
