Ronald F. Guilmette -

On 19 May 2019, the ARIN Mailing List Acceptable Use Policy Committee evaluated multiple reports of potential violations of the ARIN Mailing List Appropriate Usage Policy (AUP) <https://www.arin.net/participate/mailing_lists/aup.html> with regard to your posts made to ARIN's Public Policy Mailing List (arin-ppml at arin.net<mailto:arin-ppml at arin.net>, i.e. “PPML").

Upon review of your posts of 15 May 2019 and 17 May 2019, the AUP Committee has confirmed multiple violations the AUP in the following manner –

• Specifically Prohibited Activities #1 - "Statements that include foul language, personal character attacks, or show disrespect for other participants, including ARIN” due to repeated use of foul language and insinuation of ill motives on other PPML participants

• Specifically Prohibited Activities #5 - "Posts which interfere with the customary communications on the list” due to repeated postings on topics which do not pertain on number resources policy

Ronald F. Guilmette - you are hereby warned that your posts to the PPML must be focused on purpose of the PPML list (i.e. "policy-related ideas and issues surrounding existing and proposed ARIN policies.”) and that any further violations of the AUP (including, but not limited to attacks on the motivation or character of others) will result in loss of the immediately loss of posting privileges.

Thank you,

John Curran
President and CEO
