Re: ARIN, and reservations?

Who 'allowed' you to announce the /19 when you had a /20 of it?

ARIN, at least to us, has been clear on not announcing what isn't

In the spirit of full disclosure, we were being boneheads and using
addresses in the reserved space under the mistaken assumption that
since we were being allowed to advertise the whole /19, and had intent
to use it, and were going to ask for the other side, it was OK to use
that space. Not so.

It would have been nice if ARIN had dropped an automated note to the
effect of, "Hey, you've got x months to apply for this space before we
re-assign it."
