Re: Questions about populating RIR with customer information.

Do you run an rwhois server with the allocation information already? If so, you'd have good reason to be aggrieved at blacklists not doing some amount of due diligence (though I think that's the first time I've heard spamhaus and fiveten - the two extremes of professionalism - bundled together).
If not, then yes, if there's abusive traffic coming from hosts on your systems you're likely to find the smallest published allocation blocked (for reasons that are generally pretty good decisions operationally on the part of the people who don't want the bad traffic).
My question, mostly is related to the privacy of the customer whom the space is being allocated to. Has anyone ever had an issue where they have published a user's information and the user had an issue with it? Is there some way that we can 'proxy' the information so that it simply states that the /29 has been allocated to a customer but it doesn't provide their contact information?
If you get a reputation for "providing spammers with anonymous SWIPs" you're likely to have more problems with wider blocking, rather than less.
You'd need to ask your contract lawyers about most of that.
