I've had +six people respond to my last message in regards to this
thread (particularly to my ``click'').

After reading the policy, it would seem apparent to me that the
responsibility of any message sent by ARIN to a responsible POC would be
up to the address holder of the POC... is that correct?

ie. if spam filters catch a message destined to them that originate from
ARIN, then they, or their email admins should be aware to allow all
email from ARIN to traverse the filters and make it to the destination.

I appreciate this effort, and feel that it is the responsibility of the
recipient to accept the message properly from ARIN, as this has been
decided and documented in our policy.

If you fear your filters fscked it up:

"If you have any questions, please contact the ARIN Registration
Services Help Desk.

Ask ARIN via your ARIN Online web account:
E-mail: hostmaster at arin.net
Phone: +1.703.227.0660"

fwiw, I mean no disrespect... I'd like the ones who don't know that they
might have a message in their filters to read this.

For those that have responded to me with spam complaints, please send me
the headers. I'll help eliminate the text that hit the rules.
