[arin-ppml] Against 2013-4

I for one am a supporter of the needs basis.  As I have said before, if we eliminate the needs basis then I want to be first in line to request everything that is left.  I am sure there will be quite a queue.  

My perception is that the ARIN community is strongly biased to support needs basis and there is a very vocal minority trying to eliminate it so that they can create a market they can profit by.  I don't read the opposition to needs basis as having anything to do with the good of the community, though there have been many mutations of the spin on it to try and advertise it that way.

Certainly there are folks in this community who frequently and sometimes loudly voice their support for needs based assignment policies.  Then of course there are folks in this community like me who are vehemently against needs based assignments and I certainly have voiced that frequently and sometimes loudly.  There have been others who have done so as well from time to time.  

It is not an assumption. It is reflected in the numbers each time this question has been raised in a public policy meeting throughout ARIN's history.
