If you google for it, you'll find lots of obsolete bogon info, typically 
lacking the suggestion to check IANA's web site or other resources to 
check the freshness of the data or any warning that the data will change 
over time as more space gets allocated.

Do you threaten to sue them all?  The real problems are all the networks 
that setup static bogon filters some time ago which nobody maintains or in 
some cases, even knows about.  Changing a few web sites won't fix any of 
those routers.

It's a lousy position to be in, but my suggestion is try to make contact 
with the bigger / more important networks blocking your new space and let 
the rest of them figure it out on their own.

I'm surprised William's site hasn't been updated.  He used to be fairly
active online.  Has anyone heard from him at all recently?
