at least at INX-ZA, there’s an expectation that if you announce a 
route, you’ll be willing to honour onward routing to it.  honouring 
it, might mean different things, to different people though;  it might 
be entirely in the remote ASN’s policy to not route back to you.  most 
IXP admins won’t get involved in that sort of discussion since it’s 
outside their purview.  and bear in mind, one of the services that this 
networks purports to offer is anti-ddos services, so .. /shrug .. 
imperfect knowledge.

i can certainly put you in contact with a human to help report the issue 
to, if regular contact isn’t working, and if that doesn’t work, i 
can help show you how to filter this.  i don’t know that a bilateral 
session (which is what i think you mean) vs. a private interconnect is 
going to make any difference, but again, imperfect knowledge.

i’ll ping you off-list.
