I have a hard time having a serious conversation with someone who
simply tries to deflect from the issue at hand.

You know quite well I was not suggesting ARIN rely solely on LinkedIn,
and in fact go on to suggest ARIN get a signed attestation from the
owner of the company that he is no longer the owner.  I was suggesting
ARIN use all resources at it's disposal, and treat them with an
appropriate degree of skepticism.

What I hear is that you're not putting a lot of effort into it, in
fact that you're not even trying because it is hard.  Every time
this issue comes up I see you in particular, and ARIN in general
expend a ton of time on the mailing lists trying to find every
possible reason to ignore what the community wants.

It's really sad.  I thought you were there to help us, not make
fun of us.
