I won't feed. Actually I'm dead serious, and I suspect Suresh is missing the point. I consider the original claim to be completely ridiculous, and I'm trying to find analogies that make this obvious. Or, let's phrase it differently. What do you expect the RIPE NCC to *do* upon registration of a new LIR, if you all think that "check their company registration papers with the company register to see that this is a company in good standing in their home country" is not enough? Requiring the RIPE NCC to get a full police background check on the persons listed as contact persons will cause a massive uproar - and not solve anything either. So: what should the NCC do, to avoid being a "partner in crime"? As long as a prospective LIR and their owners have not actually done anything illegal (as in "have been convicted by proper legal processes" not in "Suresh doesn't like what they are doing"), it's a bit hard to find reasons in the legal framework of the EU to deny them membership and IP addresses.
