Having a prefix that happens to be visible from everywhere is different
than having a prefix that belongs to an ASN. Your mail was unclear as
to whether your /21 was its own seperate ASN or not.
I have to wonder why a phone call and pleading were needed to get
it out of 65/8 - was your /21 being filtered or hidden in some way?
