My vague memory is that someone stood up and said something like:
conditions in the us and canada are xyz, and the rest of the arin
region has different conditions
To which someone (I think Ray) said something like:
This policy applies to the Caribbean, we also have some other islands
Basically in an attempt to correct the speaker that the policy was not
"non-us non-canada" but rather Caribbean.
To which someone else added something like:
It seems like they would have similar issues.
I don't recall anything that sounded like "advocating" to me.
The transcript is at
but I see nothing of this conversation there. It may well have
happened in an open mike, or at the social.
Truthfully (and part of why I posed the Wikipedia links) I'm not sure
many people in the US, Canada, or the Caribbean know ARIN is providing
IPs for a small uninhabited island near antarctica, for instance. Id
doubt many people have considered the issue at all.
