ARIN has a history of circling the wagons after it is unable to
prevent public dissent. Generally, a "first strike" mentality exists
whenever the organizations credibility or integrity of it's process is
challenged. It's unfortunate that we spend so much time controlling
and so little time working on good policy that makes sense. Right now,
transition is failing as a result of ARIN over-controlling policy that
is related to v4 transfer.

Not much more I can say on the topic. I would like to again thank my
colleagues for their hard work.
