OK, I think your criticisms might be slightly valid hear, there is
nothing explicitly telling you where to send complaints of this kind.
listed under hostmaster at arin.net
* Registration Services questions (e.g. requests for number
resources and other services, SWIP, reports of bad POCs, transfers, etc.)
* Where to find Registration Services information on the website
* Submission of all templates (except reassignments and reallocations)
* Ticket status information
* DNS questions
* Requests for database reports
* Network abuse issues and spam
* ARIN policy questions
* WHOIS questions
* Revocation questions
* Country code questions
* Statistics questions
* Routing Registry questions
* General questions about ARIN's services
"Network abuse issues and spam", "ARIN policy questions", and "WHOIS
questions" that I think are at least related. Finally, there is a
qualifying default route "General questions about ARIN's services"
Given this list, I'll bet if you were to send such a report to
hostmaster at arin.net that someone would take it seriously.
Finally, if you feel this isn't sufficient you could make a suggestion here:
us page, and I'll bet beer that it will get done. At the very least you
would get an official response from ARIN Staff.
Given the existence of the ACSP, making suggestion on PPML of this
nature are mostly rhetorical.
