Now that we have confirmation, are you willing to accept that lack of a ORG update, or even insertion of No, Contact Known does not always mean that a object is invalid?

Ted, if you need more information, past John's confirmation, I can share more.  Things happen, people are not infallible, ARIN included.  Your "screw 'em" attitude is not helpful when trying to sort out such a sensitive subject.

If I had not been able to get this issue sorted out, and lost my resources later due to the state of my ORG and your (and probably others) views that I cannot be bothered to update my information therefore I (and anyone else in my position) have no right to the resources…  

Also since you seem to claim you were the one who pushed so hard for the policy that caused me to lose many hours dealing with ARIN are you going to compensate me for said lost hours? ;).
