$250/year for maintaining the registration of a single class-C network with an
RDNS record that rarely changes, one ORG-ID and 2 POCs that I confirm every
year, but are otherwise unchanged (since the Post Office changed our ZIP code
about 17 years ago) seems excessive.
I'll keep my free legacy allocation from 1993, thank you.
