A) No cable company in their right mind is going to speak BGP to a 
   $29.95/mo residential customer, period.

B) The answer to his question about "I don't know if what I'm doing will 
   violate the AUP or not" is, when in doubt the answer is YES. No sane 
   comapny is going to let this guy near bgp with a 10ft pole after that 
   statement, but then again no sane people read nanog any more I suspect.

C) If this guy actually had a CCIE, I would encourage Cisco to quickly 
   implement a SWAT team responsible for reposessing the CCIE medals of 
   anyone caught using the words "Class C" for a /24 out of 66. space.

D) Please do not feed the trolls. :)
