I never attacked you.  I have only pointed out the obvious.  It's in  
your contract, and it's clear in the mission statements of ARIN that  
they take this seriously.  As well they should.

We build our switch configurations from our database.  The only  
possible thing an audit might find is a customer who is continuing to  
pay us but no longer using the service.  Which doesn't mean that they  
won't, so it is hardly an auditing crisis.

You already have that task.  It's in your contract.

As I've said the same thing for 5 exchanges running, I'm going to  
avoid responding again.
