I guess that there is something that either you, or perhaps I, are not
understanding here.

Did you mean to suggest that either Mr. Cohen or any of the friendly networks
that he has persuaded to announce routes for him (by paying them to do so)
are doing any of this just for their health?

Financial gain appears to me to be the obvious motivation for all of this.

Allow me to clarify.

In the case if the APNIC region blocks that I have called out, I have -no-
evidence to suggest that there has been any deception or untoward manipulation
of registry information whatsoever.

With respect to the AFRINIC region blocks I have called out, if you have a
relevant citation from the criminal code of the island nation of Mauritius,
I would be most appreciative if you would share that with me.  It may come
in handy at some point.
