Darn good question.  These announcements (it they are real) have reached
crazy and unreal size.

I saw the follopwing :

This is over 1 million announcements in 24 hours.

My frustration is that too date when I ask specific sites about their high
count I get a "no problem I can see here" type of response.

Clearly something is either wrong with some routing or with the reports.

Can some expert(s) in this area try to explain (or look into) what may be
going on?
