I keep seeing seeing this argument from you Mike. I honestly can't
understand why you think the needs requirement is such an obstacle for a
company with a legitimate need for addresses that they would have to avoid
ARIN altogether. Following that same train of thought, wouldn't it be easier
for a company who didn't care about the process or being honest to just
falsify their needs justification?

I deal with tiny tiny tiny companies who have had no problem whatsoever
showing need for resources. ARIN staff and policy have always seemed very
accommodating from my perspective.

Have you had a different experience?
