[...] (yes, the below is a different situation than the original poster) And what exactly do you do if you have a small block (eg. /22) that you have zero use for anymore and want to get rid of but it is not allocated directly from the InterNIC but rather out of another provider's block (a /16 in this case)? Nope, can't talk to the InterNIC because they don't want anything to do with it because it isn't allocated from them. Nope, can't just give it back to the company (that is supposedly a backbone provider here in Canada) that now owns the /16 it is taken from because they ignore all attempts to try. The solution? Let it sit there doing nothing but hurt you when you try to get more PI address space in the future.
