As strange as this may seem, I still think there's hope since it's 
thoroughly covered by existing DNSBLs.  A few POCs, and you should be 
able to get it delisted.  Yes, there's local listings such as ours, but 
the number of local BLs that identify specific blocks in _advance_ of, 
say, SBL, should be relatively small.  And we're quick to delist once we 
find out.

But _first_, you have to get it disconnected from whose hijacking it 
now.  There's no way you can get it delisted given it's _current_ 
metrics, not a chance.
