   I'am I the only one that finds that the fact that the prices actually
*decrease* the larger the address blocks is disturbing? Not only does it
make entrace into the ISP market more difficult, but it allows the
creation of a highly profitable market for the resale of IP addresses if
you buy then in bulk to beging with (yeah, yeah I know about allocation
policies, but I seen people get large blocks easily).
