Hi Jimmy,

That's not really fair. If you want to couch it in voting terms, only
the 54 people who voiced an opinion should be counted as voters. Of
the others... some are from out region and may consider it
inappropriate to stand for or against ARIN region policy. Some are
staff prohibited from voting. Some are there to report back to their
organizations and don't have an opinion to offer.

53:1 in favor of the general idea but only 24:17 in favor of
"tweaking" the text and sending it to last call. So, 44% of
respondents were in favor of a "tweaked" version moving to last call
while 32% were in favor of either abandonment or returning it to the
AC's docket.

Still, your main conclusion survives:
