In the post you quoted it says:  

"In my last post I pointed out the do not announce to peers
community AS5580 was sending to Cogent, Level3 and who knows who else. So
any ASN that is not a customer of Cogent or Level3 wont learn the 5580 path
from them."

Verizon, ATT, and the rest of those networks are Tier-1 networks meaning 
if 5580 was tagging the route with do-not-advertise to their transit 
providers (Level3 & Cogent) the other Tier-1s wouldn't have another route 
to it.  Looking at routing updates there were a lot of them yesterday for 
that prefix, for whatever reason.  The lack of reachability was completely 
due to Atrato, had nothing to do with the ISPs in the US.  

It was reachable for me yesterday on our network, but we peer directly 
with Atrato.

It's possible they did it to stop a DDoS, some other kind of attack, or 
any number of reasons.
