[ppml] Question?

Well for the record here is the rather interesting story..
1. The whois contact replied to my email. He no longer works for the company.
2. I have submitted it to the site as you noted.

I must ask however, shouldn't the RR be involved when the IPADMIN technical contact for a block of IP's has changed over 60 days ago and the record not changed?

When an ARIN.NET staff member see's this I will forward the IPBLOCK info to you, as I am not sure where it should go.

There is no RR requirement; however, rfc.2142 states that an actively
maintained abuse address must exist. I would suggest you do a whois lookup
on the domain and mail the tech contact. If that fails try the tech
contact for the block. You may also want to file a report with
http://www.rfc-ignorant.org/ Personally, I don't believe the RR should get
involved in policing such things . . .
