I think ARIN shouldn't be in the anti-spam business and I think they'd do
more harm than good if they tried. Spam is tricky. It involves unappealable
value judgments that we really don't want the -monopoly- registry operator
to make.

That having been said, it'd be nice if a few more network operators at the
two-steps-removed level would make those judgments. I'm tired of the
service providers that connect the bulletproof hosters getting no grief
from their own backbone providers.

Regards,
