RE: Pitfalls of annoucing /24s

I noticed the verio filter policy, in relation to inbound:
 - In the traditional Class A space (i.e., 0/1), we accept /22 and shorter.

If I want to announce a /24 in the 64.x.x.x space(traditional Class A space)
am I'm going to have a problem with other networks that have peer filters
similar to Verios?

Thanks,
Jean-Christophe Smith

That's how Verio does it, and I assume, that's how most people who 
filter by length do it as well.
