On the operators using DoD space? Too bad. It happened on 23/8 to me and
many times. I would get a call and was asked to "make an exception" and let
someone use a subnet or three while they "figured out what to do". Why
would I or anyone subsidize another network operator? o_0 I received the
space because I had need. Which means I didn't have the option to turn a
blind eye. Someone buying address space should be in exactly that position
or why would/could they buy it? Just as ARIN can't set policy to stop
squatting, squatters have no rights.
