Google peering pains in Dallas

So it has been 3 weeks of major ICMP packet loss to any google service over
the Dallas Equinix IX, it is not affecting performance of service but is
affecting us with customer complaints and service calls due to some
software using it for monitoring purposes people using it for benchmark
testing.  I have been told from them that they know the cause now and know
that a Large ISP on the IX is causing the issue(Hmm wonder who that is...),
so why do they not shutdown the peer with them and force the ISP to fix the
issue?  This issue is affecting everyone on the IX not just us, very very
frustrating.  Hopefully this will reach someone over there that can do
something about it.....
