I have already posted here -all- of the IPv4 CIDRs representing -all- of
the AFRINIC-administered IPv4 address blocks that I have reason to believe
have either been "stolen" or "squatted on", as I define those terms.

context and history of these thefts, and I will make that additional
information public at a time of my choosing.
