Sounds to me it will end up that way, Moral hazard will come into play. But if it ends up this way, why would we need this long paper anyway, because we can replace it by one line. equally divided by member numbers. If in term of pure cost assumption, this proposal with single line should get passed.(people paying average fee will not object, and the large guys will support it, and only small guys will object it in which they will become minority in this case). If the entire charging proposal end up simply with this single line...I don't know if this will be good for all. > > Nigel > > ---- > If you don't want to receive emails from the RIPE NCC members-discuss > mailing list, please log in to your LIR Portal account and go to the general page: > https://lirportal.ripe.net/general/view > > Click on "Edit my LIR details", under "Subscribed Mailing Lists".
