This issue also affects the larger CIDR on occasion.  If an abuser was on
one /24, some ISPs will block the CIDR to which it belongs, even if the ISP
has taken care of the spam.  Geoff of Exodus and I spoke of this at length
at the conference.

Presumably, if the block has been returned, the former user is out of
business or on another block and cannot be contacted.  How does it help us
to know who that was?  
Are we forced to use this space in tiny blocks to interrupt the routing?  I
think we can ill afford to blacklist blocks.
