It is not quite right. > i.e. "feel the pain" instead of "gravy train". Agreed on the "spirit" of what you have to say. I also think that there would need to a mention of something that states that this should be done within the limits of the law in Holland. Perhaps also consider immediate to by end of 2003 to give time to hand over some projects to other bodies/parties that might be interested in them. I think the most disappointing aspect of this situation is that the RIPE NCC management team and board aren't leading this discussion and that they themselves have not yet realised that the situation as it stands is not fair to those members who only want registration services.
