That's not what I meant.  I meant that if you have to filter someone,
*your customers* will complain less if you filter one of my /18s than
if you filter MIT.  My network is less important to you.  You should
spend less of your routers' resources maintaining connectivity to me
and more maintaining connectivity to MIT.
