well you can filter or "talk to people", as Gert said on that topic
during RIPE52.

I guess i'll filter 3FFE::/16 towards all downlinks for starters,
probably Null-route the Traffic, but still accept the routes "to talk to
people" :-) and make them take their announcements down when i am bored
some day. Worth a try.

...but i'm no big transit provider so that's just my 0.02EUR
