Hello...I'm using *more* than a /20 right *now*. If I had 100% efficient utilization of the IP addresses that we're using *today* I couldn't fit into just a /20. I can't come up with *any* logic that would make sense to renumber into a /20. This information was clearly spelled out on our application. If the folks at ARIN are too dense to add a few numbers together, you'd think they'd at least drop us an email or a phone call and ask a question or two! Sheesh! There is *NO* excuse for ARIN here, what they've done with us has *NO* rational explanation.
