If you google for it, you'll find lots of obsolete bogon info, typically lacking the suggestion to check IANA's web site or other resources to check the freshness of the data or any warning that the data will change over time as more space gets allocated.

From the first page of google: bogon ACL cisco

Do you threaten to sue them all? The real problems are all the networks that setup static bogon filters some time ago which nobody maintains or in some cases, even knows about. Changing a few web sites won't fix any of those routers.

It's a lousy position to be in, but my suggestion is try to make contact with the bigger / more important networks blocking your new space and let the rest of them figure it out on their own.

I'm surprised William's site hasn't been updated. He used to be fairly
active online. Has anyone heard from him at all recently?
