Yes, then I to accuse an entire body -- such as the ARIN membership of  
this. Myself included. Probably worse for me. I know better, but use  
the excuse that I don't have the time to donate to help educate the  
world and be active enough to try and be part of swaying such  
proposals before they happen rather than just bad-mouthing them after  
they've been produced by hard-working folks who do take the time to  
put them together. I spend time on the PPML armchair quarterbacking  
rather than on the IPv6 Wiki contributing information.

Michael, I take your comments to heart. To the Wiki with me.
