Ron - 
 Leo seems to have pulled one sentence from the middle of 
 my remarks; here's the full statement in context from the 
 transcript -

"Legacy resources that have been abandoned because a company, for example, has dissolved don't really pose a problem. Misuse of legacy resources could be problematic, could take more resources than handling other cases. And, again, we need to know is there a prioritization here that the community would apply if we adopt this policy."

 I meant exactly what I said, which is that ARIN doesn't have  
 difficulties cleaning up resources which are truly abandoned... 
 it's fairly simple to do so once we receive a report and can 
 determine the address holder is defunct. I was not speaking of 
 resources of  a defunct organization which are in active use 
 and likely being misused; those can indeed be problem *which
 is precisely as I said in my remarks*

 We're absolutely willing to put more resources on these types 
 of abuse, but need to understand which targets and what level 
 of resources the members want us to invest here.
