Now this is a case for vigilantie volunteerism!!
We need a guy to sit there and do this - register these lapsed
domains, setup POC's for them
then send ARIN an e-mail returning the legacy space!!!
People do this vigilantee volunteerism for spammers when they
setup blacklists, why not this?
Come on, folks get with it!!! ;-)
Seriously, why doesen't ARIN have an employee that has this
assigned to them as their full time job - the finding and
returning to the address pool of fallow legacy assignments.
