If you're going to filter, it is your job to keep the filters updated, not
ARIN's. Nor is it ARIN's job to move your blocks around every time some
idiot doesn't accept it, or after you manage to get it blacklisted, or
whatever. They need to allocate more space from 69 so anyone still 
filtering it wonders why they can't get to their latest porn site (no
pun intended) and fix it.

Is it honestly that much work to send an email, "psst you're still
filtering 69/8, stop it" whenever you run into that situation? Why don't
we all go bug Rob Thomas for a bogon update mailing list, and stop pissing
and moaning on this one. :)
