Hi Ronald,

Then don't call it fraud. Call it "use potentially inconsistent with
ARIN policy." Let ARIN determine whether it's fraud.

Of more concern to me is the lack of transparency in ARIN
investigations of fraud. I realize there's a delicate line to walk
here between public transparency, non-disclosure of private
information and defamation but it doesn't feel like we're at the right
balance. The whole thing happens behind closed doors. Unless it ends
up in court, all the public gets is a terse summary.
