A customer of mine owns a cidr block they haven't been using.

They've asked me to advertise it.  I note that this block is
being advertised by an ALTERNET customer.

The nic / radb agree with my customer:
B3 Corporation (NETBLK-B3NET-EC)
   2521 W. Arnold St.
   Marshfield, WI 54449

   Netname: B3NET-EC
   Netblock: -

Note that the ``unscrupulous other isp'' has gotten inverse:
   Domain System inverse mapping provided by:

But the route is being annouced by ``cyberconnection'' out of AS701.

Ideas?  Should I just advertise this and to hell with the backbones?
