Other than making it difficult for people to figure out WHOIS using that
ASN, "yanking" an ASN's registration has little practical effect. You
can use an un-allocated ASN almost as easily as using an un-allocated
I've see these:
Network Origin AS Description
22.214.171.124/30 14408 iCAIR
126.96.36.199/16 2548 Digital Express Group, Inc.
188.8.131.52/24 11770 Net56
184.108.40.206/24 9768 PubNet (Korea Telecom)
And the large amount of private and unallocated ASes has already been
mentioned on the list this week...
Someone is watching, it's another issue what to do about it, if anything
can be done at all...
