Indeed, or there's something else we don't know about.
b) _do_ announce the specific block routed to null0

announce unallocated parts of it to a blackhole it's
nobody's business to tell you that you can't).
DO NOT DO THIS. The TRO specifically prohibits him

That remains to be seen, especially if the authority issuing the TRO has
no jurisdiction over BGP routing. If you find an attorney that wants
your money (easy enough) and a judge who is stupid enough to issue a TRO
that I can't wear a green sock and a red sock, I will nevertheless keep

c) In regards to the tail-end of your mail, what you

policy were to stand, what prevents cable modem users,
or dialup users, or webhosting customers, the right to
ask to take their /32 with them?
Exactly, I have one IP address with SBC (formerly Pacific Bell) at home,
I'm too lazy to renumber my tunnels if I switch ISPs, so I'm going to
require SBC to allow my one IP to be routed somewhere else? Ridiculous.
By the way Alex, have you given some thoughts to suing the company that
announces parts of your block? Should not be too difficult, if it's not
portable and assigned to you. We all like customers that bring lawsuits
with them, don't we?
And what's the block in question so we can WHOIS it?
