I've spent a fairly substantial amount of time over the last few weeks 
attempting to get ISPs / hosting centers / little Johnny's server in his 
mom's basement to debogonise my prefix.

I can tell you that I've heard no less than four times from networking 
bods that we're still listed as a bogon on, that they 
don't think they need to update their filters etc etc.

So while I agree entirely that you shouldn't use these sites for 
accurate filters, we have to recognise that in an imperfect world there 
are some people who do choose to use them, no matter how silly we feel 
it is..

Guess the point I'm making is that chasing down bad bogons is a 
frustrating enough task without an alledgedly accurate listing site 
posting out of date info.

PS - if anyone has a networking contact at , please send 
me a mail because I'm getting hair loss I can ill afford trying to get 
them to remove their bogon filters.
