	Haven't heard that one, but I doubt they'd be that stupid.

	That one I have heard.  The actual pricing structure in the
	early ARIN proposals (http://www.arin.net/) was scalable;
	it was never $2500 per class C unless you're getting them
	one at a time, in non-contiguous blocks.

	These kinds of conspiracy theories are on literally dozens
	of other mailing lists, including NAIPR and PAGAN.

	Please note the reply-to.
