Hi Bill,

I am aware of the phrase and its freighted use.
But you are using it here as an argument against a policy that would facilitate the renting of IPv4 addresses by entities other than incumbent address owners or RIPE members. 
So I ask for more clarity regarding the application of the phrase to this  policy proposal.
Are you against all renting of IPv4 addresses, and if so, why?
Or are you against only non-incumbent owners renting space?

Regards,
Mike

And yes, "rent-seeking behavior" is always and everywhere a bad thing.
