[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-133: No Volunteer Services on Behalf of Unaffiliated Address Blocks

Further we have been asked on a number of occasions by law enforcement not
to remove questionable data from whois.  They insist that it's often better
than nothing..  I forget which ARIN meeting it was but there was a
presentation by some law enforcement folks regarding this very issue.  I am
sure the slides are around somewhere on the ARIN site.
