I don't think they're doing anything that would violate any TOS. They
are, however, wasting IP space by allowing a single dedicated server
customer to purchase /24 and shorter for reasons including SEO and IRC
virtual hosts. If this is ARIN's intent, so be it. Otherwise,
understand that they're lying to you in your fraud investigation. If
that's not important to you, again, so be it.
