Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2019.10 upon confirmed receipt, suggesting that we use CIDR notation in the arin-issued report to make it easier to scan for block sizes.

The format of the arin-issued report was defined through a Community Consultation (see: We have reason to believe that community members process this report through scripting, and that to make a change to the format of the report would create problems for those users. Out of an abundance of caution, we will not be making a change to the format of the report at this time.

Thank you for your participation in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. This suggestion is now closed.
