Whether the third party knows it or not, the ARIN staff would still be
required to do the full investigation on each wolf cry without this
paragraph.  That is the need for the paragraph.  It provides an out
for the staff to use discretion in ignoring such repeat complaints.
Without it, policy requires them to evaluate each one even though the
results for the complainer are the same either way.
