Multicom Hijacks: Do you peer with these turkeys (AS35916)?

Oops, following up a bit late.

I was told yesterday that AS209 blocked their acceptance of from AS35916 based on a number of complaints, which 
unfortunately left a path via their peering with NTT (which I presume 
they can't filter for $reasons). But then a short time later AS35916 
withdrew the announcement entirely, possibly because of the traffic 
engineering implications of that filtering (not sure).

Short-term, it's a win, but long-term we may not have seen the last of 
this prefix.
