If you read the URL originally referenced, they intend to blackhole riaa.com
itself, and then run a honeynet gnutella network.  Anything that pokes their
Gnutella and then does anything else on their net that looks suspicious will
get blackholed.

Just imagine it - lots and lots of ISPs running honeynet Gnutellas, and if
you poke around in it you get blackholed.  That would make the RIAA's day. ;)
