Back when I was chasing packets in New Zealand it was fairly common to lose access to USG networks because their administrators had blocked "chinanet", by which they meant "". Most NZ networks were covered by that supernet.

I would hope that things have moved on since then (it was a while ago), but the first thing that leapt to mind when you first mentioned the weirdness was "ah, someone's blocking 'chinanet'".
