Operational matters as in ARIN operations.

While operations ARIN does such as rDNS, whois, etc. may impact those
outside of ARIN membership, ARIN members are (generally) the ones
paying for those operations.

If you want a say in changing those operations (and thus changing what it costs
to perform them), you can become a member of ARIN for a mere $500/year, or,
you can use the ACSP which is the process for submitting non-policy matters
to ARIN which are then brought before the community on PPML in a non-policy
context.

The community on PPML.
