Very good initiative. You can count on me as one of your users.

Note that apparently it doesn't seem to be working as expected yet.
Indeed I already received two false alerts:

1.
Subject:
watchmy.net BGP Alert - seeing {91.198.99.0/24, 6450 3737 701 702 43751}

Body:
Hello, we are seeing 91.198.99.0/24 being advertised with aspath 6450
3737 701 702 43751.

We are alerting you because of the rule you set that is watching for
prefixes that match or are more specific than 91.198.99.0/24, and are
originated with any origin AS other than one of 702,6661,8220

Thanks,

Is this normal?
