Ah, but yes it is... The other day, I received the following message
below asking us if we were still using the network provided to us. Since
we are using it, we politely replied; I'm sure many more people than I
were contacted for older networks.

Subject: Network Number Usage Survey-- 188.8.131.52
We have been asked by members of the PIER Working Group of the IETF,
with the approval of the IANA and Internic, to conduct a survey of a
section of the IPv4 address space.
Your address appeared in the InterNIC database as the likely person to
ask about the following set of network numbers:
Pyramid Technology Corporation (NET-RELIANT-HV)
Network number: 184.108.40.206
If you are not the correct contact, please forward this message to
the right person if you can. If you are, we would like to know:
Is your organization still using this address space?
If you are not using it-- would you be willing to return this
address to the IANA for reallocation?
Your answers are important in planning future allocation of the IP
address space. Thank you for your time.
