All fine and dandy.  I must be dense, I didn't see where that big long
quote had anything to do with your claim that InterNIC's policies were
discriminatory.  All it proved was that RIPE gave you a /19.  In fact,
they gave you a /19 under the condition that you can't *USE* it without
their prior permission.

Anyhow, you're citing RIPE's policy regarding *registries* in support of
your claim regarding InterNIC's policy regarding address allocation to 
startup ISPs.  I remember learning back in grade school that citing
Teacher Jones' grading of Billy's math homework didn't do much good when
you are complaining about Teacher Smith's grading of your English paper....
