And some see you as protecting the "status quo" and the
resources that you have collected. Most of the ARIN Board
members have a vested interest in making sure that the
status quo is maintained, especially the NSI people.
None of this should be a surprise to anyone, especially
not the U.S. Government politicians. They have been dealing
with issues of resource allocation for years. The FTC and
DOJ are now involved in these issues. I have confidence that
these agencies will get to the bottom of things and progress
will be made.
In the meantime, people have to make positive progress on
solutions that work and provide more resources so that
those hoarding the resources do not continue to control
the future of economic development around the world.
