That's a rather clever Catch-22 you've set up there John.

I could have just come here and said "I think that ARIN might not always be
vigorously enforcing the policy that requires members to have a substantial
connection to the region" and you would have instantly said "Ron, you have
no evidence to support that."

OK, so, we'll do it in the opposite order next time.  I'll make a generalized
claim and you'll then challenge me for a specific example and I'll present
the specific evidence.

I can't see how it makes much difference, one way or the other, since we
end up with both the general claim and the specific example in the end
either way.  But if it pleases you to start with the general and then
proceed to the specific, I'm OK with that.  Your wish is my command.


P.S.  I'm not sure that I ever saw from you a crisp answer to the question
"How many times has ARIN enforced policy against a member in cases that
(a) did not involve the non-payment of fees and that also (b) did not
involve criminal fraud?"  Is that number zero?
