Ted, I think you're directing your comments at the wrong person/company. I only made the comments regarding SIDR, conveniently
preceded with "[WEG]". I simply quoted a previous commenter for context.

So if you had a point, either related to Sprint or to the overall conversation, I missed it.

When we connected to Sprint they would not adjust their BGP filters to allow us to announce our block until the WHOIS database had
been updated.

And that was a few years ago.

Nobody is proposing that ARIN have such control.

If Sprint made a company decision to ignore WHOIS that would be their decision, ARIN could not interfere no matter what it put in
WHOIS.

But when Sprint does makes such a decision, you let me know, Wes.

  and this proposal would do nothing to change the fact that ARIN does not own or operate any routers, other

ARIN an additional way to alert network operators of a potential problem. I would still recommend that if anyone decides to move
this recommendation into a formal policy proposal, that they consider the implications of SIDR on how it is implemented.
