[arin-ppml] POC Validation results in locked out Admins

Confusing. Anyone ever hear of ARIN locking people out of the online
application for an invalidated POC? With no way to automatically address
things like employee departures or other errors typically made by provider
assigned address this seems like its over the top and contrary to an
accurate whois. It would be easier to simply validate the bad data than to
go through the operationally expensive efforts to fix it.

How does this work ARIN?

3.6 Annual Whois POC Validation
3.6.1 Method of Annual Verification

During ARIN's annual Whois POC validation, an email will be sent to every
POC in the Whois database. Each POC will have a maximum of 60 days to
respond with an affirmative that their Whois contact information is correct
and complete. Unresponsive POC email addresses shall be marked as such in
the database. If ARIN staff deems a POC to be completely and permanently
abandoned or otherwise illegitimate, the POC record shall be marked
invalid. ARIN will maintain, and make readily available to the community, a
current list of number resources with no valid POC; this data will be
subject to the current bulk Whois policy
