ARIN is currently three people from Network Solutions, Inc.
This is a private company launching another private company
to apparently "inherit" U.S. Government assets (IPv4 Addresses)

While this is going on, NSI is launching an IPO to raise
money to fund more private ventures.
Are people really supposed to sit around like fools and
watch this ?.....while you describe anyone that objects
as a "hijacker"...?
