If Abovenet considers ORBS's business an AUP violation, why is it accepting the advertisements at all, other than to hijack traffic for the netblock they dislike?

This way, MAPS can attack ORBS without it being publically obvious. Greetz, Peter. -- email@example.com - Peter van Dijk [student:developer:madly in love]
