The Legacy community mostly doesn't exist.

While there are some legacy orgs that have large amounts, and some
smaller ones that have small allocations, who are still using their 
numbers, there are a large number of small allocations out there that 
were abandoned years ago and ARIN has not reclaimed.

I think the legacy community is speaking volumes by not participating by commenting in this forum.
