It could be, that this specific network was announced once and isnt anymore today. > Did you get some spam from any specific IP in there? Yes. And true for all those networks (once we got a connect from those IPs). Im trying to find a few, that are really routed somewhere and really hove no whois, but that needs a bit programming first ... My main question was, why ARIN and LACNIC are saying, that they belong to RIPE and RIPE is saying, that they belong to AFRINIC and AFRINIC is saying, that they are worldwide. Should AFRINIC not say, that they are unassigned, where they belong to them and arent used right now ? Instead of saying, that they are worldwide ? Should not any resource belong to one of the RIRs (even if its PI space) ?
