Actually, we never inserted AS8298 in any of the AS-sets we announced, so you should have seen them...

Sidetracking: BGP should never accept a path from another peer
containing the ASN of a directly connected peer... does it or not?
Hmm, I don't know. It wouldn't likely be selected as best path, of course, but why shouldn't it be accepted?
