Ya sure, like any of us would admit to 50% clue-ness.

With all the posts here about bogons I would really be surprised that any nanog readers didn't know about keeping bogons updated.

Out of curiosity - what percentage of connectivity providers are both clued enough to be represented on NANOG and yet unclued enough to not understand the need to keep bogon filters up to date (even if you just get a BGP feed from Team Cymru)?

(By the way, Nick - if what you sent NANOG was a form letter template, I'd lose a lot of the RFC references and point at Team Cymru's stuff instead)...
