[arin-ppml] Spammers openly selling ARIN lists

Contact Google and Microsoft ;)

Seems like these obvious data list sellers have found a home there.

Just don't give in to the pressure to redacct email abuse contacts from 
rwhois please... just because some one 'might' be spammed.  The 
importance of accurate valid contact information FAR outweighs that 
threat, and there are otherways to mitigate spam problems. and.. that 
might JUST be "their" purpose .. to encourage anonymous IP space

(since any decent spam protections stops these guys.. )

If anyone has spam coming into their abuse boxes, share them with us ;)
They are fun to target..

Seriously though, bigger fish to fry but love to see Gmail make some 
improvements on these obvious spammers using their infrastructure.
