This is pathetic.  ARIN is supposed to be working as a steward of this 
IP space.  When you have policies that make it more difficult to use the 
IP space this isn't even remotely close to stewardship. It's pathetic, 
with the policy making a quick turn around of releasing old IP space 
when you get an allocation, that ARIN is leaving innocent third parties 
who have paid ARIN large sums of money for this space.
ARIN, frankly you can suck it.  It's time to grow up and behave how you 
were intended to.
