Purchased IPv4 Woes

Hi All,

     Hopefully this is not taken in bad taste.   Our organization 
purchased some IP space last year ( to be specific), and 
it appears that this block must have been used for less-than-admirable 
purposes in the past.

We have been trying to clean up the reputation where possible, and we do 
not appear to be on any blacklists, but we do appear to be blocked from 
a lot of networks across the US/Canada.    I am noticing a lot of name 
servers blocking our requests, many web servers, gaming servers, mail etc.

This is a transition block for us to move towards v6 everywhere, but we 
have many systems that will need to rely on this block of space for some 
time to come.

We are a small rural co-op ISP in Ontario, and I am just writing this 
email as an extra plea so that if you happen to run a network that has 
this entire range on your naughty list, we would appreciate you giving 
it another chance.  I can be contacted on or off list, thanks.
