Hi, Sean.

] Cymru, because of those dangerous inclusions.

This is one of the reasons why we offer the list in a wide variety
of colors and models.  :)  Take a peek at the RADb entries, which
do differentiate based on type:

    - fltr-unallocated
    - fltr-martian
    - fltr-bogons

I hope this helps!  We could also divide the list in our text and
HTML offerings, and add separate communities for special use and
unallocated.  I'm always sorry to hear that folks can't use our
projects, especially if they don't convey to us why.  Suggestions
are always welcome!
