Abuse is abuse.. People are going to do bad things, even when you call them illegal (in some cases, as a result of calling them illegal). It's not illegal to be a tool, but it is illegal to break a law. In my opinikn Laws need to be written and passed, not thought about and argued over. If we are going to arbitrarily make our own laws, why don't we start at something cooler than preventing a guy announcing someone's Internet addresses? I understand the magnitude of these actions, but at some point we need to pay attention  to things outside of /dev/internet. Again.. I'm not saying these hijackers aren't pricks, I'm saying that stealing an AS number shouldn't be illegal - committing a crime with information gained should be (and is). It's not that I don't care, I just don't care that MUCH.

if anyone wondered why abuse goes unchecked, wonder no longer.
