> I consider myself both "well informed" and "interested in participating" but by either measure my vote is precluded unless and until I sign a contract with ARIN legally granting them the authority they already assert.  Heck I practically wrote the ARIN 8.3 section but couldn't even vote on it.

Mike - 

  While ARIN does encourage legacy address holders to enter into a 
  registration service agreement, you are not required to do so and 
  in either case, it does not affect ARIN's authority to operate the 
  registry in accordance with the policy developed by the community
  in this region (and a process which you do have the ability to 
  participate in in either case.)
