randy this is really beneath you.
If ARIN office holders are socialist planners, does that make you
some kind of heroic Objectivist freedom fighter, or maybe a weasely
post-Soviet kleptocrat trying to loot the public trust before anyone
notices? I don't happen to believe that any of these three taunts are
true, but even if I did I don't think that injecting them here would
serve any constructive purpose.
Last time I checked ARIN office holders were network professionals
volunteering their time -- i.e., members of the community.
A wise man once recommended that we try to resist treating other
members of the community as the enemy. That sounds like good advice
to live by :-)
