cannot access some popular websites from Linode, geolocation is wrong, ARIN is to blame?

The addresses assigned to their hardware interfaces may fit that

The addresses assigned to customer virtuals, OTOH, IMHO do not
really meet that test. The virtual and its content are not property of
Linode, they belong to the customer. Yes, the customer is using
Linode's hardware as an execution environment for their virtual, but
the address range is assigned to the customer virtual. At that point,
I would argue that the policy for SWIP does, in fact, apply.
