for the embarrassing wannabe example of the month, marla and lee [0] at
the last ietf is just such a shining example.  at the mic, they state
are from the arin ac and board, like it was their day job and they were
speaking fo rarin ploicy.  and they propose to roll back a decade of
progress getting operatonal policy the <bleep> out of the ietf.  and
they don't even understand why they got jumped or why thomas's preso was
in the opposite direction and was widely supported.

the arin ceo's response to my suggestion that this be curtailed?

or ask a grown-up who has the stomach to read the arin ppml list (i
could only stomach it so long, and pulled).  it is an embarrassment to
the internet.
