The fact that the hijacking ISP's upstreams accepted routes 
through their network that didn't belong to that ISP is bad 

That we should still be able to advertise anything without 
an appropriate filter being in place and expecting it to 
work (even if it's with good intention, as in this case) is 
equally as bad.

A big fail to our community, for up to this day, not 
implementing basic routing and forwarding filters that would 
do away with all this cruft in the first place.

Clearly the Youtube/Pakistan/PCCW incident has long been 

But that's life, I guess...
