In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process, the ARIN 
Advisory Council (AC) held a meeting on 20 September 2012 and made a 
decision about a proposal.

The following proposal was abandoned:

     ARIN-prop-181 Penalize IPv4 bad actors

The AC provides the following statement about prop-181:

"The AC abandoned ARIN-prop-181, "Penalize IPv4 bad actors", because of 
a lack of support for the policy on PPML, and because the AC felt it 
would not be technically sound and useful policy.  In addition, several 
members of the AC expressed the sentiment that ARIN policy should not be 
used to penalize a segment of the ARIN community."

The AC abandoned proposal 181. Anyone dissatisfied with this decision 
may initiate a petition. The petition to advance a proposal would be the 
"Discussion Petition." The deadline to begin a petition will be five 
business days after the AC's draft meeting minutes are published. For 
more information on starting and participating in petitions, see PDP
