Yup. :-) Furthermore, this measure was discussed (and other issues of
interest to folks on the NANOG list are routinely discussed) at ARIN Public
Policy meetings, which are _not_ restricted to ARIN members. The next one
is in Washington, DC, which is convenient to many of you. (See
http://www.arin.net/announcements/memmeet.html) Show up! Be heard!
Furthermore, ARIN pays a great deal of attention to its public policy
e-mail list, as was previously noted. That list is also open to the
general public. Sign up at http://www.arin.net/members/mailing.htm !
There are a number of opportunities and mechanisms to democratically
influence ARIN policies. It exists to serve its members and the Internet
community. I for one would welcome seeing the broader community take more
advantage of those mechanisms.
