Frank, I have assumed, hopefully correctly, that you meant this mail to go to the list again, so I have copied my reply there. "Dipl-Inform.

You did not describe a silver bullet. The RIPE community has urged their members to stop spam and abuse for years, RIPE-409 says it quite plainly, this has been the repeated advice. There are potential ways of enforcing this, but please do not claim that what has been discussed so far today will suddenly stop network abuse. >>> Usally there are to many ideas resulting in at least something to do. >> >> And many things have been discussed, and often solutions suggested.

The aim is to get governments and LEAs onside, to examine policies and procedures at RIR level and to avoid the making of necessary legislation and to keep the bottom up consensus approach. However there is no way that governments will not be involved, the idea is to take their input and show them we, as a community, are acting. >> and putting procedures in place that can more directly tackle network >> abuse.

I will post an agenda, but I'm not sure what discussion there is likely to be as my two calls for agenda items have, so far, met with one single response. Equally, the agenda of any WG is reasonably mutable and on occasion has been finalised an hour or so before the meeting, so there will be plenty of time for discussion. >> playing a major part.

Apologies, I should have been clearer. As has been stated elsewhere and, I believe, on this list, while policy proposals will, undoubtedly, be discussed at meetings, the primary place to discuss policy is the WG mailing list and there is no intention or plan to purely discuss things at meetings.
