I'm not sure about 'nasty' more so than 'long'. Take for example the entire Korea network. When the request came down to block it, this is what came up when I looked up their range:

> netmask -s 222.96.0.0:222.122.255.255 222.96.0.0/255.240.0.0 222.112.0.0/255.248.0.0 222.120.0.0/255.254.0.0 222.122.0.0/255.255.0.0 That meant adding 4 lines to our router's access file. A file that's rather large as it is.
