Access to the Internic Blocked

The number of transit providers who turn off lsrr is growing daily.

Quite frankly turning it off it simply makes everyones life harder.

The only justification I hear when I question this is a) "this is some
kind of proxy security mechanism for our clients" (really!) or b)
"whats loose source routing anyway?"

perhaps if folks would just take the time to loose source route
in both directions instead of only one...

was the web page in response to complaints to those who turn off lsrr?
