Uh, a BGP feed doesn't do you any good folks.  You want to block INGRESS,
not outbound packet flow.

I thought I heard BGP mentioned about 25 messages back as a means to put
more pressure on these networks, by shutting off connectivity to them. It
is also a means to distribute throttling to others during a smurf attack,
say if someone upstream has the feed.  I can see that using it might create
more problems, but its also a decision that can be made by the network
provider.  I'll just offer a site to run the gated and coordinate changes.
