ARIN Comment

8 January 2007

ARIN includes the CAPTCHA (security box) on the suggestion form to try to prevent automated spam bot submissions. Our experience is that our forms without this security box are bombarded by these bogus submissions, which in turn, could lead to denial of service attacks against ARIN systems.

Suggestion 2006.10 is now closed.
