You don't have to keep a full-time engineer just to handle
NACRs, do you?

RIPE database does not control the actual routing.

I'm not sure the current RADB project has any mention
of real-time updates of gated from the database.
With dozens of updates we do every day it nearly as good
as useless.

You call *that* secure?  We have way too many people who
need to do changes for our AS-es.  Check the contact

If i can't implement my existing policy, i cannot use RADB, ok?

(Well, we _will_ use it -- to talk to people whose announcements
are loaded with garbadge).  We simply cannot use it to talk
to major service providers because policies in place cannot
be represented in RIPE-81.
