Can we at least get serious. Why would ARIN allocate a member resources
which an entity would put in some shelf unused just because that entity
pays its membership dues. So for ARIN its about paying, this is what you
are saying.

So why would ARIN as an RIR then bother itself with the below as per

ARIN may conduct such reviews:

   1. when any new resource is requested,
   2. whenever ARIN has reason to believe that the resources were
   originally obtained fraudulently or in contravention of existing policy, or
   3. whenever ARIN has reason to believe that an organization is not
   complying with reassignment policies, or
   4. at any other time without having to establish cause unless a full
   review has been completed in the preceding 24 months.

But I understand, yours is more about [1] , so you completely make sense.
