Hi Ted,

Thanks for your care and advise.
I have provided enough evidences and ARIN just ignores them and keeps
saying further instigation ( sort of thing). It has been one year since I
report this.  maybe the system is corrupted or someone corrupted inside.
Who knows!   ARIN will not rectify thing which embarrass themselves. So
this case has been suspended forever till the deletion of ARIN pool and
everyone in community forget about IPv4.......

So rather than asking help from ARIN. It may be helpful to resolve this
problem by attracting as much attention as possible from the righteous
community.
