What *is* rare is a BGP hijack done solely to intercept a confirmation e-mail
sent to Joe Sixpack when he's trying to get his Gmail account back. Can anybody
provide a *single* example of that being done?

Now, if it's Joe CEO or Joe Prime Minister, the calculus changes a bit. But
as I said - at that point, you have bigger things to worry about.
