As someone posted before (but you probably didn't read):
Actually, I read it just fine. Yes, that is the block that is in use here. I
just don't know who the hell Alex Black is. I also asked SpeakEasy. Weeks
later, I'm still waiting for an answer.
When did '-a' become a whois option?
Speakeasy Network (NETBLK-SPEAKEASY-4) SPEAKEASY-4
Black, Alex (NETBLK-SPEK-RMEYER-0) SPEK-RMEYER-0

Black, Alex (NETBLK-SPEK-RMEYER-0)

Now, I realize your name isn't Alex Black (unless you have multiple
personalities), but it sure looks to me like SpeakEasy knows
how to SWIP
(and the SPEK-RMEYER-0 name suggests they were trying to SWIP
it to you).
Among other things, I'm also a SysAdmin. Of course, I have multiple
personalities! But, Alex Black isn't one of them. Also note, Andreas
Stoller's email addr. Do you actually think I would get any sort of response
if I sent an email there? I might as well send it to email@example.com. He
probably uses the same bit-bucket that mhsc.net does (the /dev/null brand).
