Ah, you're just following orders, right?
Out of curiosity, whose idea was it to poison the routing table with /24s?
It doesn't sound like the kind of thing a commercial person would come up
with. It would have required a technical person who understands BGP and more
specific routes over-riding less specific to suggest the idea, then
implement the configuration.
It's one thing to continue advertising a client's /20s, but quite another to
deliberately put in shorter prefixes.
I'd seriously question the ethics & morality of any tech who suggested
and/or implemented said route poisoning.
