I hate to continue this argument (perhaps we should all move it
over to isp-admin-list at aol.com, which is a good place for real admin types
to discuss these types of issues), but I have to disagree -- just as with
a standard pingflood, the intent is irrelevant, the flood must be stopped.
A very good case could be made that isp-inter.net is slowly packetflooding
world.std.com on port 25.
