On 26 April, 2017, we received two new suggestions to the ARIN
Consultation and Suggestion Process.

*  ACSP Suggestion 2017.11: Mailing List Support of DMARC [NEW]

Description: All ARIN mailing lists do NOT support senders with DMARC

What this means is that senders who have DMARC enabled will be able to
post to the mailman mailing list (and it will show up online via the
archives), but when mailman distributes (relays) the senders message to
all users subscribed to that list, each users MTA's will reject the message.

This is currently happening to the open consult
mailing list, as just ONE example. The implications of not fixing this
is tremendous.

More information published by Mailman: https://wiki.list.org/DEV/DMARC

Value to Community: If implemented, community will be able to resume
interacting with one another via the current mailing lists.

*  ACSP Suggestion 2017.12: Remove phone number as a required field in
ACSP Submission [NEW]

Description: When submitting a suggestion via
https://www.arin.net/public/acsp/index.xhtml ARIN currently collects
phone numbers as one of the required fields.

The page layout / user experience makes it unclear as to what is done
with that information. Is the phone number published as part of the
request? Is it used for internal purposes? What specifically is shared
with the public when the attribution of "List me as Author?" Only first
and last name? What about email?

Suggestion: Remove collecting of phone numbers as a required field.
Enhance the current page and make it clear to the end user what will be
shared to the public vs not shared when either attribution values
(Anonymous or List me as author) is selected.

Value to Community: Enhanced user experience

We will be evaluating these suggestions and issue a formal response
within the next 10 business days.
