I don't feel it is up to the NCC or anyone else to reply on this mailing list to accusations that, right now, have no back up. If you wish to discuss this privately you're more than welcome to mail Tobias and I at aa-wg-chairs at ripe.net and we can discuss the matter with the NCC with an eye to a public and transparent resolution to this. > They say to use -r > in my requests but won't address the the fact the requests would not > give abuse contacts or > that requests would then have be different to RIPE than the other RIR's. > They won't address > the issue that the abuse contacts involve all regions and not just RIPE. There is, right now, no formal requirement for members to supply abuse contact information. And the regional DBs are not linked. I don't think there's any question that abuse is a global problem and I don't feel the NCC are ignoring this, but without specific details it's hard to say. > They won't name the > legal advisor or point to any written opinion.

If this is something the community feels needs to be revisited and there is legitimate reason to do so, then it should be revisited. > These decisions affect millions of people around the word and not just a > few insiders on this list or in these groups > that have all these meetings that most people cannot attend (even if > they did attend they would be driven > out by the insiders in short order).

We have all of our discussions on these mailing lists, the meetings are streamed live with an option for public participation and while I realise people may dismiss my words on this matter with the accusation of be being some sort of "insider" the recent feedback we've got is that new attendees at meetings *don't* feel that way. However things can always be improved and the Working Group Chairs Collective is always open to suggestions and the like. Brian.
