What personal gain standard? I certainly didn't advocate one, and I
don't find anything like that in ARIN's rules. As far as I can tell,
anyone can pick an alternate postal address, a hotmail email address
and a vonage phone number for their SWIP information if they so
choose, quite regardless of whether any personal gain is involved.
