"If you wish to support a petition, simply post a statement of support
to PPML on the petition thread. Point of contact information is also
required, either to the entire PPML or to petition at arin.net."

There is a ubiquitous and usually unwritten rule that in order to post
messages to a discussion-oriented email list you must first subscribe
to the list. The PPML is not among the exceptions to this rule.

PPML subscription is nearly instantaneous and open to anyone with a
working email address via
http://lists.arin.net/mailman/listinfo/arin-ppml. Unsubscription is
also available at any time.
