Even when CRL was alive (not just a zombie) we were never able to get them
to clean this up.
I had similar experiences with @Home. Could not get them to pull a record. Couldn't even get to someone with enough clue to know what the RADB was, for that matter.

Ultimately, whomever ARIN (or other RIR) says owns a netblock has to have the right to remove crap from the RADB/IRR type databases. That's the only way the data ever has a chance of getting clean.

Anyone trying to use such databases to build filters is going to have major trouble.
