Note: Apologies if anyone doesn't want to discuss this on arin-discuss. I
always assumed this list was intended for relevant discussions about ARIN
with "PPML" being for policy discussions. As Rodney Joffe pointed out,
there is a URL to a working unsubscribe function at the bottom of all ARIN
lists AFAIK if this is problematic for anyone.The list is also tagged in
the subject. It is quite easy to filter for later reading comfort. It is a
nice way to approach any mailbox organization.
While I have preferences for voting as an impact to the policy aspect and
overall public interest in ARIN, I am not a DMR. My voting views are not
relevant to the issue at hand. If there is one. Did I receive actual
unsolicited commercial email "UCE"? I don't have a direct relationship with
the sender. They weren't asking me for money or selling me anything other
than themselves. On one hand, someone running for election seems to have a
right per VA corporate law to access information identifying voters. On the
other, I am not the DMR for any company at the moment. I don't speak for
one either. My interest is solely as an internet citizen. Seems like a grey
area with ARIN being between the rock and the hard place more than
\While in the era of Green Card Lawyers this would have been horrific,
today it is not. It is 2018.I don't like spam in the traditional sense, but
I am over it in the general sense. Spam filters, both automated and
personally configured do well enough. Spam is never going away as long as
there is anyone alive willing to send money to $scammer. I'll leave it to
the pros and each individual as to what they think it is. For me, this
isn't a really a debate about spam.H owever, I do think their is an issue
for ARIN to consider for next time. Is email considered PII? What affect,
if any, does that have on the required disclosure?
I doubt that my information was shared by ARIN, but it is possible. If it
were, I'd be surprised as only DMRs have votes and while others may be
listed in the ARIN database, they may not be entirely relevant to the
statute. So was it spam? I don't know, but I'm not putting any more cycles
into thinking about it.
Food for though. For next time. $0.02
