Hi John,

Of the four folks across this conversation who've levied complaints
about ARIN asking for customer identities for /32 users, none have
expressed that ARIN inquired into customer identities for their
dynamic pools and one expressly stated that ARIN didn't ask about the
much larger dynamic pools at all. Four does not make a statistical
sample but it does suggest a pattern.

That having been said, you raise an issue I'd like to put to the floor:

Per your statement above, ARIN considers itself at liberty to inquire
into the personally identifiable information (PII) of the smallest and
most ephemeral consumers of addresses among the ISP's customers during
an ISP's application for addresses. Is that correct?

Folks, is that what we want?
