it was not LACNIC list, it was LACRALO list!, with automatic translation to
Spanish for our region.
I might agree a 6 month cool off period is desirable, more than that should
endanger ICANN ability to attract people (or worst, in order to attract
them should pay a premium, so the people can stay 1,5-2 years not working).
