The press release explicitly stated that "The transfer of IP resources
to Microsoft took place using this relatively new policy."  That could
only refer to NRPM 8.3, the only "relatively new policy" regarding
transfers.  NRPM 8.3 states " Such transferred number resources may only
be received under RSA ...."

Ergo, Microsoft must have received these resources under RSA.

Or are you accusing ARIN staff of knowingly violating the NRPM and/or
ARIN's President and CEO of issuing a fraudulent press release?

Please, folks, engage your brains for a few seconds before you hit "Send".
