Well whatever you were shooting at you missed.

If you are receiving a public asset or in use of a public asset, than there
are certain
disclosure agreements that you must submit to. So I would bet that there is
very little information with respect to disclosure that is a part of the
allocation
requests.

Nice try though. Take a bit better aim next time, ok? >;)

Becouse the IANA (Jon Postel) than prevailed on ARIN to allocate the
/8 to @Home. And ARIN complied.

ARIN should have told the IANA, NO! You do it yourself. We (ARIN) want
no part in this. That simple.

Subject: support for DNRC

As I missed the dealine to sign the petition I would like to add my name to
those supporting the DNRC's petition arguing against additional regulation
of Domain Name Registration.

I strongly support the free and equitable distribution of DNR's as one of
the founding democratic principles of the internet.

Sincerely,

Christoph Marikovics
