Jeff, it seems that you would propose to entrench the digital divide by punishing all of Africa for alleged crimes of a few Africans.
You are fully aware I believe that RIRs have never been given authority to
police spam, and therefore have no responsibility whatsoever in that regard.
As in other region of the world, spamming activity in Africa is a problem;
but it is one which has no bearing whatsoever on the RIR for the region, and
certainly no relevance to the approval of AfriNIC.

All,


  Well there went the neiberhood!  Bad decision here.  Given the amount
of UCE spam coming from Africa and in particular IP addresses from
african nations, it would be obvious that AFriNIC is not ready for
prime time yet...
