John that sounds good in the theoretical world of this community but in the real world that I must live in, it is not reasonable for a monopoly to deny a resource request just because others in the community don’t want me to have the resources.  I again point out that you are a monopoly and your mission is to allocate resources and NOT to deny resources.  Because they are a monopoly, the phone company cannot deny me another phone line just because the folks who already have phones in my community don’t want me to have one or another one.

I am not asking for a crazy amount of resources like a /16, my request is for a very small amount of resources (/22) and it is a reasonable request.  Your mission is to fulfill reasonable resource requests. Period.  I’ve read it 10 times today and every time I read it – it says you are to allocate resources not withhold them.

Steve -

You have applied through proper channels but your request is not valid as
it does not meet allocation policy criteria.  ARIN cannot allocate IPv4
resources to your organization as a result of that invalid request.

As others have noted, under the ISP multi-homed initial allocation policies
(NRPM, there is a requirement to utilized the equivalent of a /23
(generally from your upstream ISP) before receiving for initial allocation
from ARIN. This is not a policy requirement which is unique to your business
but long-standing requirement in policy that all service providers have had
to satisfy when making that transition.
Jimmy Hess did make an excellent point with regard to transfers - under the
8.3 specified transfer policy, your full IP address needs for 24 months can
be considered in approving a transfer, and as such that may be more helpful
with your present situation.  As ARIN is obligated to follow the existing
policy as adopted, a transfer may be a more timely option that developing
a policy change to these requirements for initial ISP allocations.
