Sure John, I always seek to do.

However these type of things have to be questioned publicly.
I don't really agree that most things should be a topic for arin-discuss 
really. Many will, but not all that is not necessarily linked to a 
specific proposal. Just a few examples can be: how this own mail-list 
works, how the AC is structured, ideas of possible policy proposals to 
be presented here, etc

I hope whenever a possible change gets to be discussed, if that´s the 
community feeling, it doesn't get blocked because a few people from ARIN 
think otherwise.
