Since you are using my copy of Sean's filters, I'll comment.

I put that up as reference material, not as a recommendation.  My
"official" recommendation for filtering is:

http://www.merit.edu/ipma/docs/help.html

And it might interest you to know that, to the best of my knowledge,
neither EBONE (Sean's current employer) or Sprint (Sean's former employer)
use that type of filter any longer.  The only thing I can see from any big
providers is filtering on /24s.  (If someone knows differently, please
correct me.  I'm just commenting on what I see - I have no first hand
knowledge of the filters in anyone else's routers.)

But feel free to use whatever you like on your network.  I just don't want
you to think that *I* use those.

TTFN,
patrick
