Us: you have 1100 public IPs in this building already, why are you asking for another 500?

Them: but you have some networks that aren't fully allocated, look, I spent some time and found a treasure trove (a couple /24s that are only 2/3 allocated) why won't you just do what we want

yay faculty IT

@nat Oh, they suggested NAT. We have a /16 and NAT makes things painful. We don't need NAT, we need people to clean up their networks. That group has something like 30 or 40 /24s.

@georgieboy Stop giving them legacy addresses! Just throw a whole /48 at them.

@nat That's... not really an option, calling us dual-stack would be generous.
