I've been on projects extensively the last month and a half and only now are getting back to this proposal. Gary, I take your comment below to mean that you are not in favor of making the allocation fair to small organizations. I think there has been a consensus building that it is more difficult for a small organization to get an allocation than a larger one, and I don't see anywhere in ARINs Mission that it is OK to discriminate against small organizations. 

I would also add that needs testing is really a vehicle to somehow save the remaining ipv4 pool we all know the only way to stop that is to stop allocating altogether which of course isn't ARINs mission. As to your comment about being in the Kitchen I would ask you where in ARINs Mission does it say that it is OK to discriminate based on an  Organizations size. 

ARIN 2014-18 is a reasonable attempt to rectify that and I would ask for this communities support. As the Minimum was just reduced to a /24, it is really going to save the remaining ipv4 pool to stop small organizations from getting a /24?  When do we stop rearranging deck chairs on the ipv4 Titanic that can't be saved?

Opposed as written.  I believe that continued needs testing is an important criteria for receiving resources, and this proposal would eliminate justified needs testing.

As to the costs of doing business, well, while I can understand the those seeking resources may not have properly planned for the costs of their start up and/or expansion, that is a failure of the requesting
organization(s) leaders and their staff, and requesting relief from ARIN policy because of that failure is not an appropriate response.  If it gets too hot in the kitchen, do not be a cook.
