The problem  is that there  is no  such way if  all the addresses  end in
domains routed through INTERBIT. And in  fact you will probably find that
the closest host  to all these US subscribers is  in Europe, because EARN
has a "clean" INTERBIT topology  whereas only 2 official INTERBIT's exist
in the US.  This causes your average  EARN node to be  closer to INTERBIT
than your  average CREN  node, and  since the  Internet has  no published
topology you  can easily  end up  with thousands of  US subscribers  on a
european list and there  is nothing you can do about  it: the Internet is
not in the US any more than it is in Europe or in the South Pole.
