Ron - 
  ARIN would be happy to study and learn from any/all of your tools and
  techniques in this area, and would be happy to receive any information
  that you'd like to send in this area.  I'll note that some techniques
  in use by the anti-spam community may not meet the fairness and process 
  requirements that ARIN operates under, and I recognize that this may be
  annoying to you, but reflects the reality of our legal system.

  If you'd prefer to supply information on your tools and techniques under
  NDA, please send that to my attention or let me know and I'll send ARIN's
  NDA out for your review.
