I feel like you're just gaslighting us at this point.

"You have passed through terms that are at least as protective of ARIN 
... via browse-wrap, clickwrap [...] for which such third party is 
legally obligated to said terms."

So, no, software developers cannot ship and use the ARIN TAL by 
default, which means without having to interrupt an installation 
process with a question about Articles 5, 6, and 7 and Sections 8(a), 
8(b), and 8(f) of the ARIN RPA.

Why can't ARIN just grant distribution and use for any purpose rights 
like the other RIRs?
