I have been lurking on the Smurfing issue for a while

In my experience most tier 2&3 ISP's when they sell T1 access to the
internet just deliver a basic configuration
on the router with NO route filters whatever they do not even put the most
basic access restrictions on the router
We as a group should create a best practices document (with sample config's)
to increase the distribution of cluefulness
across the network as a whole to reduce the incidence of these problems and
make less firefighting neccessary for ourselves.
