"Now that the petition has moved forward I do have some further comments on this proposal.

I do not think that ARIN is in the business of defending the secrecy of customer lists.  Keeping your customers should be a matter of competitive pricing and quality of service, not sequestering your customers in a closet or keeping them in a walled garden.  Free enterprise is part and parcel of doing business on the internet.

Hiding community members from contact by prospective service offerings is not included anywhere in the ARIN mission statement that I could see."


Could you point to the portion of ARIN's mission statement that covers regulating who a community member may be permited to have act as an agent for them?
