If you want to discuss what ARIN could or could not do, then please join
the ARIN ppml list.

The original poster doesn't have a problem with the community. He has a
problem with network operators who are not part of the community and that
is a reality of today's Internet that cannot be dealt with by technical
tools or operational methods.
But there are non-technical and non-operational actions actions that ARIN
could take to help. The details of those actions and whether or not ARIN
members want to act are matters for the ppml list.
