Kevin, I find myself in full agreement with you except that this isn't
the matter under discussion.
ARIN sent mail not to a subscribed direct mailing list, but to every
POC contact in the database. In particular, the (A)buse contact goes
to an abuse helpdesk which tracks down and deals with abuse reports.
It is not an appropriate destination for ARIN information notices.
Direct mailing lists like this one are appropriate. Mailing to the
POC contacts assigned for ARIN communication, and for which role
accounts are not appropriate, as likewise appropriate. Neither of
these were used.
