	you either generated the bogus route yourself or
	you heard it from one of your direct neighbors.

	there is no other way for you to hear the route.
	Now you can -look- for what might be bogons (from your
	perspective) in other places in the net (route-server.*)
	or some random LG.  But just because a route is there
	does not mean it shows up on your border.  And routes
	that show up in those places are "nominally" interesting
	only from the perspective of "...are my routes propogating..."

	If there IS a legit.bogon that shows up on your border,
	then the -only- people who can do anything about it are:

		) yourself. *
		) your peer.
	(*) or you can contract with me at the usual and customary
	    rates to config your routers for you.
	It may take both of you to provide the types of "corrective
	lenses) to give you the view you think you want, but it is
	an affrontery to "jump over" your providers to pester other
	ISPs that you have no business pestering.  The routes they
	exchange among themselves is their business.
