RE: 69/8...this sucks
Great. If you can get _EVERYONE_ to listen to Rob's server, I'm all for
it. Frankly, I was unaware of Rob's server. However, I think it makes
more sense to have the people maintaining the data distribute the data
directly from the source. Right now, I'm betting that Rob's server requires
someone in Rob's organization to keep up to date on all the RIRs and manually
tweak the contents of his list.
What is the perceived advantage to the extra layer of indirection?

Longer answer, if the ISP configures his router correctly, he can actually refuse to accept advertisements from other sessions that are longer versions of prefixes received through this session.

Why make organizations who don't have route servers do this? I've been peering with Rob's bogon server for a little while, and it works great. All of my customers get routes that point the bogons to a traffic sink on my network. If they were so inclined, they could sink that traffic before leaving their network.
