Re[2]: Announcing 2003::/16 during tests of "shipworm"

Dear Paul Timmins,

Then Microsoft should use their own ranges. They can test that with
3ffe space, too. There is no need to pollute the main routing table!

No. Sure, Microsoft does good work with this protocol, but again:
There is no need to pollute the global routing table!

I would support them, to. But Microsoft thinks "we are god, we can
pollute what we want" and that's really bad. Their Peers should
really filter such invalid routes.
