Unlike the Youtube outage where PTA had issued a directive asking all
ISPs to block Youtube - What is the reason most often cited for such
mishaps? The reason i ask this is because the ISPs that
"inadvertently" hijack someone elses IP space,  need to explicitly
configure *something* to do this. So, what really are they trying to
do there?
