I've heard of this. Additional info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bogon_filtering

Essentially if your BOGON filter is out of date ips that were not used in the past that have been reclaimed due to ip exhaustion won't load because they are filtered.

If you are trying to load an IP on verizon, but can't your own isp's bogon filter may be out of date.

If you are using verizon and can't load a website because of the bogon filter, Verizon needs to update theirs.

Not everyone uses a bogon filter.
