The AC has a responsibility to the Internet community and the ARIN
service region to ensure that policy it recommends is clear and
understandable as well as needed.  The AC makes recommendation to
dispose of a policy through or out of the PDP by vote, needing 8,
individual, votes to take an action.  In that they are individuals and a
collective in their responsibility. 

The AC owes you and the community the same transparency....the formal
posting of its actions on the ppml along with statements about those
actions when something is dropped from the PDP. It also owes you minutes
of the meetings and those will be forthcoming.

It, in my opionion, does not owe you a word-for-word transcript of the

I have been as clear as I can be about the disposition of 2010-10...the
reasons it was tabled and the ambiguity that resulted from the wording
used when I motioned for the Draft Policy to be forward to last call.  I
regret that is went contrary to your interests, mine and I believe the
rest of the community's.

As the Primary Shepherd for the Draft Policy 2010-10, I am currently
making every effort to address the concerns of my colleagues on the AC,
to produce clear, appropriate and acceptable language that will allow me
to make a successful motion at our November AC meeting.  That is my duty
and responsibility.

If will fulfill that duty and responsibility to the best of my ability
as I have always.  I believe that the AC not only fires on all
cylinders, but does a heroic job in their efforts to secure the best and
most appropriate policy for the constituents in the ARIN region.
