Every time I show a customer of mine how to configure a router, I 
try to educate them on this.  We need some kind of massive marketing
effort to get this out to people though.  People would do it, but nobody
knows about it.

Maybe we should get CyberPromo to spam all the technical contacts
in Internic's database to tell them how to do filtering. :)
