Here is one that is somewhat the opposite, the AS announced a

what kind of misconfiguration could cause this set of prefixes to be
announced?   I asked the AS responsible, but have not had a response.
Misconfiguration? :-) That's a nice word for spammer. See Joe's PPT at:

AS29449 is not the problem. It is the upstreams of AS5602 (KPNQwest Italia) and AS286 (KPN) that let this crap leak.
