Unlike POC records, ARIN Online accounts cannot use role email addresses, nor should they be shared, or transferred to another person. Individuals can take ARIN Online accounts with them if they move or change jobs because accounts can be unlinked from POC, organization and resource records.

I have been telling people it's ok to create role based accounts for their APIKEY and have heard the same from ARIN staff. If that is the case, and I believe it should be, can the text please get updated to reflect that.
