The muckslinging here reminds me of the break between

[ snip ]

I got a message from an operator people would recognize
that is interesting, useful, and relevant to operations.

Hopefully the good advice in here won't get lost just
because the author in question is on the "filtering side".

I get it, now.  It's "pro-filtering" and "anti-filtering".
There's no gray area. *sigh*

Sign me up for party #3, selective filtering, in the flamefest

"announce ... aggregates [, develop a] sensible policy
[, and acquire] /20's for each location."

Who can argue with that?

Sounds good to me.

Those of you who feel that regional & local ISPs are being persecuted,
please tattoo that advice on your forehead, backwards, so you 
can see it reflected in your monitor next time before you
flame on NANOG about how horrible filtering long prefixes is.

Muckslinging?  pot --> kettle --> black

My correspondent and his or her colleagues will appreciate
the reduction in stomach acids which are not good for any 
engineer's duodenum.

No kidding.

PS: Well, it's even better if you never announce the
    more specifics in the first place, imho, but...

Unless, again, there is no alternative.

No problem with this.  Does this mean multihoming automatically
qualifies one for a /20?  If not, we still have a reason to allow
longer than /20.
