Please do.

This ppml mailing list (and our public policy meetings) are exactly the
right places to frankly and openly discuss issues like this.  Moreover, we
specifically solicited opinions from the community on these actions.  ARIN
_asked_ for this feedback.

I personally prefer that the discussions be polite, civil, and in a tone of
mutual respect, which has I think mostly been the case with this long
thread.  With that said, it is VERY important that people feel free to
express their opinions candidly and directly.

ARIN does not (and must not) penalize people for expressing their opinions.
