Precedent, Randy, Precedent !

   UUnet and few others a long time ago had a differing definition of
"peering" that most of us thought, at the time...

But were so BIG, we accepted their routes, anyway.

 * shrug *

A secret black list is a real bugger if:

 No one is allowed to mention it exists.

 If you get on it, there is now way off, no "right of redress".

 No one can -tell- you you are on it.

 No one can tell you if you -aren't-.....

 And if you -somehow- figure out your on it,
  they can't admit it,
  or the -reason- you are on it,
  or take you off even if they wanted.

 Any and all of the above.

 On a lighter note, the US Senate recently
 unsealed the American McCarthy Hearing records.

 :O    :*   :}

In recent times, a lot of .mil have thrown up a whole bunch of null routes to large sections of international address space. Good luck getting them removed
as this means they have a different definition of the internet than
the one to which i, and i suspect others, are used, why should i and
others accept their routes?
