Yay! anonymous attacks coming out of the woodwork! Thanks for helping
solidify the procmail rule to plonk any hushmail posts to nanog. I'd
recommend others to do so.

Comply or hit the bricks yourself, coward.

- direct connection between an individual hosts' poster and the network 
  you referece is 'specious' at best.  Single-homed PI space tends to 
  not pollute the BGP tables with extraneous ASNs.

  Mr Anonymous' network claim the same? Do you even run one?

Mr Anonymous should learn to chase UP the WHOIS referances as well as 
DOWN. I'm not certain, but there might be organizational issues where
the name 'enteract' applies internally to different elements within
the organization.

...deaggregates not visible and gosh not returning ICMP - unused trash is

Apples and oranges. I do challenge you to find an announced aggregate that
hasn't been cleaned up or updated.

All the reverses I checked are in order. Perhaps you're so upset your 
zombie network was shut down that you're making typoes?

Obviously "cooperative" "domain park" and "sending email" are items alien
to you? There is not now nor was there at the time of allocation any
requirement of incorporation for allocations. There is no lack of
announcement of the space; not allocated in the misty past and unused.
To the point of the [bogus] thread, there is no transfer from one 
organization to another. Other than shooting rubber-tipped darts, what 
is your point child?

See above; you have trouble discerning the difference between continually
used, functional, and trouble-free allocations and seemingly (in some cases
obviously) hijacked, spottily used, randomly deaggreagted, and trouble-SOME
allocations.  Again, "domain park" and good operational practices of 
multisite DNS servers appear alien to you. 

The listed contact email addresses have never received any requests to
'check up on them'.  If you need to investigate further, we can discuss at
Salt Lake or on the banks of the Charles in July.  Mail direct for the
directions on the latter!

Cheers, and *plonk*,
