Milton, what you've just stated is an opinion, not fact. Andrea has already explained why much of the ERX space that was thrown over the wall to the NCC is tagged as "EU". Perhaps you didn't see this before you sent your email. In any case, a childish game of "oh yes it is, oh no it's not" or an existential debate over whether your opinion (or mine) is fact or not is unhelpful and inappropriate for this list. So if you want to carry on with that futile discussion, please do so somewhere else. Meanwhile, you could also improve the signal to noise ratio by actually discussing address policy or even submitting a proposal to this list. So instead of claiming that the NCC or RIRs in general are behaving in ways that are anti-competitive (in your opinion) please put forward proposals which address these issues or at least clearly identify the perceived problem/issue. Suggest solutions. If you can submit a constructive proposal that's technically sound, it will be warmly welcomed. > There is nothing in the messages under this heading about a "global > policy forum." This is grossly misleading and you know that. You have been posting on this list (admittedly in a different thread) about your IGF workshop and stating there will be a global policy proposal. I presume you mean this IGF workshop will or could turn into that forum.
