Re: NOC communications
Since you mentioned Sprint, I will say that we sent a request to ARIN to get Vab off our records over a month ago. They have promised me that this will be in effect tomorrow. Perhaps the new modification template Kim announced will help. One thing that would also be cool would be a way to search on a particular ARIN-handle to find out if someone who left your company is listed on any of your records. Unfortunately, with spammers using whois the way they do, this would probably be too easy to abuse.
