FYI RIPE reallocated these blocks. Whilst I understand they didn't want the
court order, this seems a bit silly, doesn't that now make the machines
residing in these blocks special - even if the owners arent miscreants, it
makes them a viable target.

One wonders why it's so hard to get the media interested when it
would be *helpful*. DNS Changer gets traction like 3 days before the
drop dead date, IPv6 gets on the radar *after* we run out of v4 /8's
to give to regionals, etc...
Reactive is easier to justify to the powers that be than proactive.
It's easier to justify *not* being smart enough to deal with the problem
when it doesn't cause a major disruption?
When it isn't causing a major problem, the powers that be have a harder
time understanding the need to act.
Once it is causing a major disruption, the powers that be have no trouble
understanding the need to act.
This is not veneration of stupidity, it is human nature. Often summarized
in the colloquialism "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."
