AS4474 is not theirs, for that matter it currently doesn't belong
to anyone as there is not valid contact information registered in
the ARIN database.

Because I am not watching IPv4 tables and cogent announced it.
Also both those ASN's are properly registered in the registries.
Next to that Cogent does respond to inquiries.

I am a user of the internet who asked for a answer at their
NOC from which I got *no* reply, except for ticket numbers,
even after sending 2 messages the last two weeks.
Which then caused me to inquire NANOG which is a correct list
to do so as nLayer is a US based (North American) "ISP".

Next to that mentioning nLayer to abuse-tracking people seems
to also get a response that there is quite a lot of abuse in
the forms of spam from them. Is that the reason they are 'migrating'
to hide their paths from the spam aware people?

Maybe you, as a perfect customer, can ask them to update their
objects in the ARIN registry or stop hijacking internet resources?
