No.  I'm not.  I'm asking if it should be harder to claim your coat at the
dry cleaner than it is to become a resource-holding ARIN member.

It doesn't take a law degree to answer that question.

Fine.  I wasn't asking you specifically.

So you don't think that vetting members should be rightfully construed as
an important matter of policy?

And you're entirely sure that you speak for the majority on this point?

All I can say is that I think this evasion is altogether worthy of British
civil servant and Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby, who also famously
opined on the frequent confusion between the policy of administration and the
administration of policy.
