Not from me/us, and not since ARIN existed or cared about usage ;-) before it started operating a colocation company was a just- 
for-friends ISP business and they were given tons of IP space from  
their providers back in the mid-1990s and shared it around.  What you  
have is Verio-assigned space.

The colocation division came into being after ARIN existed and has  
always used strict allocation guidelines.
