ARIN is *NOT* A Good Thing

Earlier I was chastised for stating unfounded rumor about fees of up to
$20,000/year yet a similar fee structure for new registrations/services
from ARIN is being proposed.   Just wanted to point out that I wasn't
referencing unfounded rumor but rather a reference that needed qualified
i.e. allocation services for organizations requesting address space
directly from ARIN.

Would you *please* read the proposal
(, might also be helpful).  If you had you
see that the fee is for allocation _services_ and only applicable to
organizations requesting address space _directly_ from ARIN.
