Hi John

Thanks for the response back to community.
But let take easier this thing about discussions on ARIN PPML mailing list. I know some people may not like of find it strange discussions that are not necessarily and exactly around a given proposal but it is not necessary to be like that.

Basically anything that has to do with ARIN PPML being a proposal or not it is fair to be discussed here, including how the CEO of ARIN interacts with its community and clarify all necessary information. That´s undoubtedly is of high importance and other topics that may affect in some way the discussions here and how community makes up their minds to support or not a proposal. …

Fernando -

That’s not quite correct, as the scope of the arin-ppml mailing list is quite clear, and postings must be more than simply tangentially related to ARIN policy.

As provided per <https://www.arin.net/participate/community/mailing_lists/#public-policy-mailing-list> –

Open to the general public. Provides a forum to raise and discuss policy-related ideas and issues surrounding existing and proposed ARIN policies. The PPML list is an intrinsic part of ARIN’s Policy Development Process<https://www.arin.net/participate/policy/pdp/>, which details how proposed policies are handled.

Discussion on PPML can cover a variety of policy related topics, and ARIN encourages free discussion. ARIN announcements to the PPML about policy proposals or draft policies include the proposal number or draft policy number in the subject field. Please retain the policy number in the subject line when you make comments about specific proposals or draft policies<https://www.arin.net/participate/policy/drafts/>. Your post or reply should open with a statement of support or nonsupport for the topic to allow others to follow discussions of interest more easily and make your position clear.

If you want a more open forum for discussion of overall issues related to ARIN (i.e. more than just topics that are  “policy related ideas and issues”), I would suggest that you support that position in the open consultation I referenced previously.
