The ARIN discussion is supposed to be about ARIN...


American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)


As a representative of RIPE[1], your views are very important.
You might want to direct people to the lists that serve RIPE.

RIPE is the European Registry that earns fees for delegating
parts of the IP address space obtained from the U.S.
Is that correct ?
