I'm very happy FranceIX apply filters - however Bitcanal is known to 
submit fabricated/falsified IRR information to databases like RADB and 
RIPE. I've reported this multiple times over the years to IRR database 

In conclusion in the case of Bitcanal, most of your filtering is useless 
(and so is mine). Participants like Bitcanal dillute the value of your 
route servers and the IXP as a whole. 

Kind regards,
