Atleast it'd trim down the 'problem' to the single customer subnet, I

Given the people who complained, and their traditionally spammer
infested nature I wouldnt be surprised at all to find that they've put
all their hosts on a flat subnet

Various  /24s of theirs keep getting complimentary upgrades from our
filters after reaching a certain limit - based on a X IPs blocked per
/24, Y /24s per /16 metric .. when that limit is reached, we
automatically upgrade the blocks to cover infested /24s.
