[arin-tech-discuss] Get an error when I am trying to create a POC

Role POCs need data in the LastName field. This data should define the
role in plain terms.  If the role defines a NOC contact, for example, then
the LastName might say something like, "Network Operations Center" or
"NOC".  If the role is an abuse account, LastName might say "Abuse Desk"
or similar. Picking a POC at random in Whois, I found HOSTM3-ARIN:

Hope that helps! :)

Hi, David
                I have a POC payload bellow. But I keep getting an error
xml from Arin. Error xml is also bellow. I thought if I had a contact type
ROLE, I did not need FirstName and LastName, but CompanyName. When I have
PERSON as contactType,
 I do need LastName and FirstName. Am I right? Or I misundstand you.
