AS 7018 BGP blackhole / AT&T contact sought

It seems that this question has been asked here in the past before...

...but without a (public) reply.  It has been suggested (both in the 
follow-ups to the above and elsewhere) that there are people involved 
with 7018 that are frequent readers here; I'm really hoping one of them 
will take pity on us and either reply here or communicate with me off-list.

We are in need of an RFC3882-esque method of null-routing /32s on-demand 
  on our provider's network before they are sent to us.  I can provide 
details of our circumstances if requested.  I have been trying to get 
the answer to this question from AT&T MIS support for days now, but have 
gotten nowhere.  The telephone support guys won't talk to me about this 
and tell me to use "Life Cycle" / e-mail for this issue.  E-mail replies 
from AWMIS are days in coming and not helpful (typically just providing 
me with more hoops that they want to make me jump through), and I'm 
becoming increasingly frustrated with the level of "support" being 
given.  All I need is a "yes" or "no" response and, if "yes" is the 
answer, the proper community to use.

I can provide past e-mail communications, trouble ticket numbers, 
further details...whatever you need.

I apologize if this is inappropriate for this list; if it is, let me 
know, and I'll take this somewhere else.
