I'd hear to see who does it, and get them to present the "operational
lessons" at the next nanog!

On second thought, I guess one thing has changed considerably since 15 years ago. Rather than ~5000 monkeys with keyboard access to manipulate global routing tables, there are likely well North of 250,000 (>25k active ASNs * 10 meat computers per), which is surely well on the conservative side.

The bottom line is [still] that ISPs should at least explicitly
filter prefixes from customers and networks from which they
provide transit services.
