[routes deleted]

I take it you get transit from the network formerly known as iMCI as from what 
I can tell, it looks like they don't send these routes to peers.  I'd be 
willing to bet this is a knob they can turn off for you if you don't want to
see the routes... Or you can just install some sanity filtering on your 
inbound peers/transit providers to nuke the /25 and up's.

Then again, like Patrick, I have no enable, so what do I know? :-)
