I would phrase it in far less colourful language, and my motivations are almost entirely opposite, but with the same end result: I don’t like this proposal.
If I have a /29 or larger, and it’s sending spam or doing anything else anti-social, I want to know about it.  Relaxing the reassignment requirements (whether that’s in fact or in appearance only) will guarantee that nearly all ISPs will do the minimum possible, specifically not include any relevant contact info for me.
From at least this one tiny piece of the community, no this proposal does not have support right now.

The elimination of any reasonable means of contact in the event of abuse it is an aberration and characterizes at least complicity with unlawful acts. The ISPs need to stop hiding and protect spammers and scammers. 500 billion spam and scam a day are not enough? What is the new goal? A trillion?
You, ISPs, RIRs, and Registrars represent GGM21C, the Great Global Mafia of the 21st Century. We know that people's personal and financial data are worth gold these days. Creating ISPs and inventing scammers to steal data is a problem for authorities. Not to prohibit a spammer, or scammer, from continuing to send his trash after being reported, is also a criminal attitude of sociopaths who abound in that environment. This is the rule with the complicity of RIRs, Registrars and ICANN. But the discomfort that complaints bring to ISPs is being eliminated through policies such as the EU GDPR and re-ordering in RIRs.
The threat of arresting the Facebook owner or billionaire fines such as that imposed by the EU on Google will not be enough to force an ethical stance on the part of the Mafia. The answer to this criminal behavior will come in the worst way: politicians, under pressure from society, will say how free internet should be "free." Then do not complain.
This policy intends to hide and protect a customer regardless of their behavior.

Looking at this, I am a NO as it is currently written.

This section deals with /29 or more IPv4 addresses, or stated another way,
8 or more addresses.  Someone who is running such a network in today's
IPv4 exhausted world needs to have a means to contact them directly in the
event of abuse from their network.  The reassign-simple does not provide
for this, unless you consider postal mail a reasonable means of contact
for abuse reports.  I have ALWAYS directed abuse reports by either email
or telephone, as a letter is not fast enough for an ongoing abuse problem.

As for the current ISP impact in regard to this policy as it currently
exists before amendment, the greatest majority of ISP customers, both
Business and Residential only have a single IPv4 address or less (CGnat)
and therefore are exempt from this policy. Only larger networks with
multiple hosts are likely to have 8 or more IPv4 addresses and subject to
this policy.  Those with a /29 or more are very likely a very small amount
of the total ISP customers, but are also the ones with multiple hosts that
would be more likely to be compromised compared those who just have
machines behind a NAT router that cannot accept inbound traffic without a
router that is programmed to allow it. I doubt this policy change will
have much change at most ISP's, since the customer base it addresses is
very small.

I would also suggest the residential exemption be eliminated for /29 or
more, as nearly all residential IPv4 use today is NAT, rather than public
IPv4 address assignment for each host.  We have talked of the problem of
spammers on this list using such /29 or more of residential space, that
are protected by the current privacy rules for residental customers, and
their abuse reports being ignored by their upstream.

Looking at the differences between the Detailed and Simple reassign
templates, I do see one thing that would merit a change.  It is that the 2
fields that are most often used for abuse reporting (telephone and email)
are missing from the simple reassignment, and fields that are rarely used
for abuse reporting (mailing address) are instead present.  This is a
decision that I would like to see changed.

I would have no problem with a template change to reassign simple to only
have Name, Contact Email and Telephone number, and omitting all the
mailing address fields.  If that change were made, I would have no problem
with the proposal, as then the Simple Reassignment will at least provide
me with a reasonable means of contact in the event of abuse from that

Eliminating the requirement for a Detailed Assignment, without changing
the fields contained in a Simple Assignment will have the effect of
eliminating the abuse contacts for that network.  I think that would be
