a senior engineer at a well-known provider just pointed out to us that
a weenie provider at mae-east was
  o not rewriting next-hop
  o sending our routes to others
  o sending others' routes to us
  o likely pointing default at us

their noc phone was answered by a modem.  we suspended peering with them and
wrote to their noc.  we got back a snotty message.  we have ceased peering
with them.

we installed packet filters.  our traffic on the east fddi dropped

when the larger providers decline to peer with the smaller, there is a sad
reason.  traceroute -g is your friend.
