Bill,

I am sorry you feel that the AC brusquely disposes of policy proposals.  We
actually aren't hasty. We spend a lot of time debating and discussing and
attempting to do the best job we can for the community.  We get input from
proposers, ppml, legal counsel, and ARIN staff.   We came to the conclusion
after much debate and discussion that 2009-8 should not move forward.  If
you feel strongly that it should then please petition it.

Thanks!
----Cathy
