Heh, have you looked at the CIDR report lately?

I have an upstream announcing >3500 /30 and /32 to me by BGP even though
they are part of larger aggregates that I hear from no other source
(aggregates smaller than /24).  I called them on Friday about it
thinking maybe I would give them a "heads up" thinking maybe their
aggregation was broken.  They told me that was intentional.  So I am now
filtering them.
