[ih] The Postel Principle

Turns out the problem is that his cloud provider, Linode, puts all of
their VPS in a single /64 which is of course full of random spammers
which get the /64 on the SBL.  I think this provisioning strategy
fails the "be conservative" test.

One can ask for one's own /64 which I believe he has done.
