Steve is correct in that ARIN put the "No Known Contacts" in his
organization record, and I'm currently reviewing the details on
how and why this occurred.  It is _not_ a case of long-abandoned 
registration of resources or failure to perform POC validation 
(which I believe is what Ted is concerned about, with good reason)

Agreed - Far longer than should have been necessary, and I will 
rectify that and send details to the list as soon as I am sure
I've finished researching the how and why of what occurred.
