We go at length to point out that the ARIN Whois database is not
routing registry and does not control routing (reference: NRPM 4.1.1),
so please cite some of these "many times" or correct yourself asap.
We run the ARIN Whois according to the community-developed policy,
and it's quite possible that ISPs find it useful for configuration
as a result, but ultimately ISPs decide what to route or not route
on their own.
