Hi Matthew,

I think maybe you missed my point. We don't know how ARIN would treat
Ronald's information if filed in a formal complaint and can't
rationally discuss whether that enforcement is consistent with our
policy-level expectations because ARIN doesn't publish enough details
about the complaints, their investigations and the results. There
ought to be a way to open that black box without unduly harming the
folks who get investigated. Like making it all public upon the
investigation's conclusion when all the information is on the table.
Upon finding the complaint unsubstantiated, ARIN could even offer the
registrant the opportunity to redact anything they considered a trade
secret before publication. We'd still end up with a heck of a lot more
information and quite possibly enough information to inform a policy
