RE: - Please update your filters

Just a data point to add here.   when you have tried the other means of
contact first, nanog has been helpful for getting things done.  I had
started having issue with the 69 blocks back in September and when posting
for help all the networks had someone respond very quickly and it was
resolved.  Again, its good to have this common operational area to work
these things out.
