So as that didn't help either, the IP ranges where this company hosts
servers and their domains have now been suspended on dir.xiph.org.
Sadly it looks like there is significant collateral delistings, but
maybe one of those stations will notice and contact us. That could help
get in touch with someone.

I've also sent an email to the abuse contact of the NOC of the
datacentre, but didn't get an answer.
