let's talk about this for a second:
What does TEAM CYMRU do? 
Can it be scaleable?
If 4 volenteers do it now and keep it going, why would you need more than 
2 full timers? Ya know so #1 can go on vacation?
And does it even need to be full timers?
ARIN has a website, and a network, can the net admin do BGP?
How would it take a whole ISP offline? IE can you really see added as a
bogon? (Sorry AT&T, it was the first IP block I could think of)

Details, well maybe this should be a thought for the ARIN meeting?
Or maybe the wishful dinner conversation?
Or maybe a thought and RFC from the IETF?

Something should be done!
