Re: ISP Filter Policies--Effect is what?
Christian, You can be damned skippy that if we had a legacy B, I wouldn't be returning it any time soon. It's the part about NOT paying arin fees that makes it most attractive. If ARIN had a policy like "If you return your legacy B and only need a /19, /18, 17, we'll simply trade -- no fees -- no harm -- no foul" I think that more people would be returning unused address space. As it stands, there is really no tangible incentive and VERY tangible penalties for doing so. --- John Fraizer EnterZone, Inc On Tue, 8 May 2001, Christian Kratzer wrote: > > > > Stephen, you neglected to look at the big picture.
