(Okay, end of "as I see it" mark.) > Taking you're "as I see it" throughout the above my response would be that you are seeing it incorrectly. This is not part of the RIPE NCC's job unless the RIPE community form a policy which goes through the PDP process succesfully, then and only then could the RIPE NCC start pulling resources for non compliance to the policy. The RIPE NCC are being paid to abide by the policies set and as such they are currently doing a good job. Forming policy within the RIPE community is not a job that anybody gets paid for. My tip would be to view some of the webcasts on the RIPE website so that you fully understand the difference between RIPE and the RIPE NCC. Brett
