Sam- I believe the impression you have is wrong.  

The objections put forward by the interent community were based on their own objections to this proposal and that they strongly felt adjustments should be made.  I dont believe I heard one person not on ARIN staff say "we shouldnt do this because the staff doesnt want it".  What I did hear people say was that they acknowledge your point and while they can understand your point they dont believe your policy as it is currently written is the right answer.  This is why you have been sent so many suggestion on how to alter your proposal.

I believe we work within a very intelligent internet community and they are self thinking people.

As I said in April[1] and repeated earlier this week[2], my impression 
from Montreal was that MOST of the objections to 2006-1 were fueled by 
the staff's concerns about not having access to data they need, not a 
desire to have city/state/postal codes published for all to see.

I don't think we'd heard from many folks who want to use that data 
about their desire for it, particularly absent a name, street name, 
and number.  If there are such folks out there, I'd really like to 
hear more about their need, and why it can't be satisfied in some 
other way.  Then we, as a community, can desire whether their need for 
the data outweighs the individual users' rights to some privacy.

Absent such voices, let's deal with the other objections and move
