iirc, he has the appropriate response to the above.

which is exactly what this proposal will result in.

Maybe :-/

Abuse handling is part of a network’s operations,


thus AFRINIC does not have the mandate to dictate to its members how to
> handle abuse and what to act on.

...who is dictating what?
Please recall us the mandate of the PDWG,
as per the ICP-2.

...then a question: what would you recommend
 to an network operator to do when being
abused from an AS without a well functionning
 abuse contact?
