That requires so much effort, most of us won't bother...and no I'm not
being sarcastic, just realistic.  Would it be that hard for someone at
aol.net to take a single /32 from that vast IP range and assign it to a
host as an IP alias or router loopback address?

I did that (router loopback to give people something to ping) with a 69/8
IP before setting up 69box.
