Yea, well, just 'cause it isn't routable doesn't mean people won't
advertise it.

I see that Sprint is still winning the bogus route advertisements war 
with:

1.1.1/30           
1.1.1.4/30        
1.1.1.8/30       
1.1.1.12/30     
1.1.1.16/30 
1.1.1.20/30  
1.1.1.24/30   
2.52.228.144   

Funny how when someone starts a bogus advertisement it is almost always
sprint or a sprint customer.
