hi, On different occasions, Suresh Ramasubramanian wrote: [a lot of stuff] you seem to misunderstand the players in this game. ripe is the community. ripe ncc is just there to help organize. it handles coordination of ips and ases, as (or: where) they have to be unique. the only reason why ripe doesn't simply hand out any number of resources to anybody is that these are finite (well, in fact, otherwise ripe simply wouldn't exist). the only decisions on handing out resources done at ripe are regarding fairness (and subordinate/derived technical decisions on coordination). that's what constitutes its legitimacy. apart from that it is totally irrelevant who the requesting party is or is not. what you are wailing about is criminal proceedings, policing (and actually also judiciary and legislative proceedings, but i think you probably didn't realise that). this is the job of law courts and police, so you should refer to them. regards, Chris
