great idea!

as i was about to send to someone else with a thinner skin than you :)

path poisoning is used operationally, though we suspect somewhat 
ill-advisedly.  but the proof of the latter will be in the pudding.

imiho, alarm systems that raise a real alert about my asn being in the 
as path of *someone else's prefix* are systems i would repair.  at most, 
it's a "when you're bored, take a look at this strangeness."

of course, we're sorry we set off folk's broken alarm systems :-)  [ 
sense of humor required, leo ]

and, fwiw, i liked the haiku!
