[ARIN-consult] Oppose retiring email templates

Sorry for the earlier misfire.  First cup of coffee and blackberries don't mix. 

Anyhoo...

That's what they said about gopher and archie. I think that this is slightly different, but not by much. Perhaps it even means it has outlived its usefulness? Its rare that I run a cli whois and has been for sometime and I think that's common with win being the dominant platform. The challenge is OSS and automated functions, but theoretically those needs could be met with bulk transfer or a new interface. 

I'm wondering how many people here have actually used the portal, even with its current limitations? I'm using it manage a -lot of IP address a space, orgs and POCS and I'm looking forward to it being a near one stop shop.

[Hey Mark, can you guys add csv export of POC linked PI and PA into some near future release? Would help for correlation of space during subsequent allocations :) ] 

YMMV,

whois protocol is used across a variety of organizations beyond ARIN  
and removing
the whois protocol interface to the data would, IMHO, be a mistake.
