And then you have junk like:
BGP routing table entry for 126.96.36.199/8, version 6739580
Paths: (27 available, best #27)
Not advertised to any peer
8297 6453 1239 5696 15331
188.8.131.52 from 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11)
Origin incomplete, localpref 100, valid, external
which has been around for a long time. And which is obviously not
being filtered by a lot of backbones.
This could be a tricky way for someone to just use whatever otherwise
unannounced space in 64/8, or it could just be a lame router configuration
somewhere that the parties involved don't care to fix.
But either way, it isn't very pretty going through the list of all
the backbones that are not filtering this sort of stuff out and
seeing just how long it is... it is truly amazing that there aren't more
widespread and frequent screwups caused by bogus announcements.
