Lazy/misguided/ex admins / downsized networks are the problem.  ARIN is in
a unique position to be able to do something to at least try to mitigate
the problem without too much effort before handing "damaged IP space" out
to members.  The current situation frustrates those who don't know what to
do, and encourages them to look elsewhere for the IP space they need.
