Ive statically nailed up this route to sprintlink, for the week of
this event.  It will be removed either when the week is up, or as soon
as sprintlink/sean requests its removal.

206.82.160/22 for the record.

While the RADB is flawed (overloaded to the tune of about 30k routes
and not including routes such as this one) I dont think ans is quite
ready to hang it up...

so those of us who rely on the RADB, or (in my case) rely on transit
provider based on the radb, we'll have to take these one at a time.

Hopefully without the "anti-trust, im going to sue you, guess I have
to be the martyr" bullshit.

Ill have you know that the filter list im working on looks nothing like
the sprintlink one in any way..least not after I took those ugly comments
out ;)
