I've contacted him a couple of times previously for using bad paths. He 
changes it for a while to WIDE3-3 or similar, and then for some reason 
changes it back to some crazy path usually including a RELAY at the end 
of the path. He usually makes daily trips from Shreveport, LA to 
Memphis, TN. We do trap the WIDE7-7 in Memphis BUT once he gets a couple 
of digi hops away in Arkansas it then floods out network because it 
arrives as WIDE7-5 or something similar.
