NetRange:   4.0.0.0 - 4.255.255.255
ReferralServer: rwhois://rwhois.level3.net:4321

% telnet rwhois.level3.net 4321
Trying 209.244.1.179...
telnet: connect to address 209.244.1.179: Operation timed out

Doesn't seem to have made much difference yet...

Its kind of hard for ARIN to enforce its policies on L3 when they have
a /8 already and are not likely to ask for additional allocation...

But obviously L3 is not giving a very good example for others, so we
can all now say - don't be like L3 :)

Does ARIN have a policy that allows deallocation based on not conforming to the requirements of allocations...?

(Might sound ridiculous, but if it works.....)
