It seems like what he is really saying is if you are under DOS from one of
FCN's host, don't pass go, don't collect $200, just go straight to his
upstream provider and inform them that one of their customers, FCN, is the
originating network of (insert DOS type) and ask that they turn down that
connection until the problem is resolved.  This way Bob's "innocent"
customers will lose their net access at the same time as his "guilty" ones
would.  In the process giving him something else to complain about on NANOG
(which is likely the real reason he endorses this plan)...

Just my theory of course, I mean I COULD be wrong.
