Perhaps we might have some success preventing smurfs from the most common
sources, hacked machines on university dorm networks, by getting the
university backbones to filter spoofs. Things like SUnet, FUnet, NYSERnet,
etc, account for a large portion of universities used to smurf from, and it
might be easier then trying to get each school to filter individually. I
found the following two addresses for nysernet and funet but was unable to
read or translate the Swedish on
