I think you're referring to an issue of blackholed packets between GX 
(3549) and Singtel (7473) in LA, for packets going to Optus (4804) (which 
for some reason appear to not be announced to normal Singtel peers). I 
don't think this was GX's fault actually, but I'm not sure if the issue 
extended beyond 3549->7473.

At any rate this has nothing to do with MySQL faults or off-topic posts, 
and it is venturing dangerously close to actually talking about routing 
issues. We'd best change the subject to spam or botnets or something, 
before somebody gets the wrong idea about this list. :)
