[arin-ppml] Fwd: spam from an IP 'broker'

So now  IP speculators have the gall to  attempt to start trying to
sell IPs on public mailing lists..
It raises a question....  the 'documentation' requirements in 8.2 for merger
and acquisition, requiring to show physical network assets transfer with IPs...

This may not be intended, but nothing in 8.3 appears to preclude it
from being used when 8.2
is supposed to be used.    There is nothing in 8.3 that says related
organizations cannot name
each other as the recipient for specified transfer,  and skip all the
documentation required in
8.2 for a merger/acquisition.  (?)

Perhaps the 8.3  policy could be adjusted to add some requirement, to
dissuade trying
to  "sell shells of a company"  with no  non-IP assets, to acquire
resources  separate from the networks
they belong to.

e.g.  "A 12 month waiting period after an organization is acquired,
before it may transfer any resources
under an 8.3 specified transfer policy.    Any transfers to a new
parent, controlling, or related organization
must be executed under 8.2,  and include transfer of equipment the
resources are assigned to."
