[arin-ppml] [EXT] Re: Open Petition for ARIN-prop-266: BGP Hijacking is an ARIN Policy Violation

They say that there are more than 80,000 autonomous systems with about one
million prefixes. The coexistence of this universe without the BGP seems
impossible with equal operability. But the BGP has at its origin a critical
design flaw. Whoever designed it or was ill-intentioned, or assumed that
the world would have no borders, would have no economic geopolitical
problems, and ISP managers would be a caste of people with unquestionable
reputation. The vulnerability in BGP design allows any of these thousands
of ISPs to hijack network traffic.

But Hijack is not a result of system vulnerability. It is the result of the
actions of malicious individuals or organizations and the result of the
precariousness of a policy and its customary ill will (or bad intention?)
In implementation.

Mr. Owen, I'd like to be able to answer your questions, but I'm not an IT
professional and my role is not to tell you how to solve such problems. My
role is to charge solution and ethical behavior because I am your victim.
Yesterday was "out of scope", today "there are no legal powers",
tomorrow... only the devil knows.
Mr. Ash's swamp is not on prop-266, it's on this corrupt internet that
treats the population as beef cattle.
Why so such resistance? Hmm?...
