"You are either part of the solution or part of
the problem. "

Sorry, but the above statement is simply out of bounds by definition.  It 
leaves no room for honest disagreement.  Nothing can be done to seriously 
address an issue as long as this type of approach is utilized.  I don't claim 
to be even involved in this discussion or to have an opinion, but that phrase 
is a perfect example of how not to solve problems or issues.  There is no point 
in discussing anything with an individual who makes such a statement unless 
they acknowledge that they are "over the top".  Let's try to keep it rational 
here, please.

Paul and all,

  To even indicate that an RIR has no authority to address or combat
UCE spam is to indirectly support spamers whom are in some instances
terrorist intending do disrupt and confuse stakeholders/users is in effect
supporting such scourge.  You are either part of the solution or part of
the problem.  Hence your remarks and opinion below and I can only
accurately conclude that the opinion of ICANN and the NRO are
supporters/enablers of UCE Spam and terrorists that are also a part
of these swine...
