It was, of course, a joke, as suggested by the ":)" characters.

For some definition of a particular subset of the "ARIN community", it may be true that accuracy of registration information is secondary to imposing policy dictates.  I suspect, however, that for the vast majority of actual users of registration information that it is NOT the case.

This might be an interesting topic for an ARIN survey.

I'm curious: do you personally believe that accuracy of registration data is secondary to imposing policy dictates?

Of course not.  

Hint: according to current policy, such use of address space would be grounds for ARIN to "revoke" that address space.

I'd be surprised if you actually believe that folks are not fabricating justifications to get around the ARIN "justified need" requirements,
