I'd have to agree with Alex.  ARIN's decisions should be kept as close  
to "binary" as possible and lessen or remove any decisions that are  
"judgement" based.
I hate spammers as well, but they are a byproduct of the open nature  
of the internet as a whole.
And even if ARIN DID punish known spammers, they'll find someone to  
pay a few hundred dollars to for being the front man as far as an ARIN  
allocation requests goes.
