Can you share the Cisco configuration snippet you recommend to 
dynamically FILTER bogons using BGP or DNS?  Not just inserting 
null-routes for the bogon aggregates, but preventing the acceptance of 
more-specifics that transits/peers/customers have managed to sneak past 
someone's filters (or lack thereof), please.

(Without an offline configuration generator, I postulate that it can't 
be done.)
