Thanks John,

I just want to be clear: under current policy, ARIN considers itself
empowered (metaphorically speaking) to act on calls to 911. If the
officer on the corner observes a mugging, he will not give chase until
someone calls 911 to report the crime.

IF we want ARIN to proactively monitor forums where reports of number
resource misappropriation tend to first surface and initiate action
based on information gained there, we would need to draft policy to
that effect.

Do I correctly understand?
