What does a Postmaster have to do with a hard drive filling up? Have you
never experienced a mailbomb attack on one of your users that fills up the
mail spool?

P.S. ARIN is not the world leader in IP registration. In fact, ARIN is the
third (and currently last) of the industry controlled IP registries. RIPE
in Europe and APNIC in the Asia Pacific region are the leaders by a few

Of course, with the *SUPPORT* and the *PARTICIPATION* of network operators
in North America, South America and Sub-Saharan Africa, ARIN may well
become a world leader in IP registration policy and technology.
