[arin-ppml] Internet Fairness

I also agree that this is an argument on very shaky ground, bordering
on ridiculous. It is almost 0 barrier to entry for any small entity at
this point. If you can't justify even the most modest needs test, then
why do you need your own ip space to begin with?

I could probably pass needs test with just my home network at this
point, so I find it very uncompelling that we should remove the
requirements just because a lazy business owner ran afowl of them and
would rather rail against the governing body than put forth any effort
to resolve the issue, or fix his own business model around the
realities of the market / physics / math of IPv4 ip address
availability vs demand.

Note: I've been denied in the past for blocks. No it isn't an
enjoyable experience, but the rules are there for a reason. It's
really not that hard to fix the issue. The main problem these days is
with ISP contiguous block availability and subsequent renumbering, and
my understanding is that has been resolved by policy changes. If this
issue remains, then let's fix that, not throw the entire set of
management out the window because one guy can't get a block of IPs for
his single leaf web server.

personal account for a reason.)
