i regularly check the report for references to 20940 and I was digging
in to these a bit and I noticed something odd:

Comment:        AfriNIC - http://www.afrinic.net
Comment:        The African & Indian Ocean Internet Registry
Ref:            https://whois.arin.net/rest/org/AFRINIC
ReferralServer:  whois://whois.afrinic.net
ResourceLink:  http://afrinic.net/en/services/whois-query

OrgAbuseHandle: GENER11-ARIN <----
OrgAbuseName:   Generic POC
OrgAbusePhone:  +230 4666616
OrgAbuseEmail:  abusepoc at afrinic.net
OrgAbuseRef:    https://whois.arin.net/rest/poc/GENER11-ARIN <---

I followed OrgAbuseRef to ARIN and got this:

"Do not use this information to contact AfriNIC for registration or
business purposes."

This registry record is confusing. Can you explain? Sorry, I must've
have missed this class in Registry 101.

Appreciated, and thanks!
