There are at least 2 different teams already doing this. The trouble is,
who has the authority to disconnect smurf amp networks? Nobody,
really...but the reality is that if an RBL-like system were setup for
smurf amp networks, and if some of the larger backbones subscribed to it,
smurf amp networks would get fixed real fast.
Can any of the readers working for backbones (like UUNet, Sprint, C&W)
speak up and tell us if there's a chance in hell their networks would
subscribe to such a service?
