Frankly, I do not understand how an AC member posting his opinion of in
support of a petition cannot be counted as a vote of support for the
petition as per PDP.
It is not as if the PDP has to incorporate sight unseen AC standing
rules, which may or may not be in conflict with the PDP.
If the AC does not want AC members participating in the petition
process, that means they must be muzzled.
In any event, PDP states that it is the ARIN president who determines
the result of the petition (not the AC), and I find myself curious as to
what extent, if any, his determination will be guided by AC standing
rules as to the eligibility of support votes.
