    ARIN ***allows*** ISPs - ISPs are the customers
    by Anonymous on Saturday July 03 2004, @08:33PM (#13866)
    ARIN is now making laws (ARIN laws) which only
    allow ISPs to do things ARIN wants the ISPs to
    do, such as look up information via only certain
    services and servers. ISPs are supposed to be
    the **customer**. ARIN treats them like an
    annoyance or a prisoner.


    "In the future, there may be other distributed lookup services that
    ARIN may allow ISPs to use. These new services must be approved by
    ARIN before being allowed to serve as a repository for reassignment

    Look at what ARIN is faced with. ARIN does not
    have very much of the address space to manage.
    ICANN (IANA) is also NOW allowing the address
    space to be fragmented and migrated to special
    uses. Big companies take a block and ICANN spins
    some .BS about what the block is now used for.
    With .ROOT and .ORG any-cast solutions, more
    and more blocks are now moving to public use.
    ARIN will have less to sell and more headaches.
    ICANN of course collects huge sums of money and
    uses it to generate more "spin".
