I am in the APRICOT meeting in Taipei now, and met a guy from
PCCW/AS3491.  I have showed him this thread, and have suggested
1) validating prefixes from downstreams before accept, and
2) setting an inbound prefix-filter to their downstreams.

Now if only everyone here on NANOG were to do what Matsuzaki has done, and take the time to educate those less clueless, the world would be a better place.
