	I would argue the same for any/all security issues.  If people would  
just shut off $VALUE, we'd have a lot fewer problems on the network.   
I will concede the problem is making it scale and viable for some  
parties.  The ones that don't make the inherent security of the global  
network a priority are dragging the average down.

VALUE =  ( infected host ip/customer, route leaker/hijacker,  
nonfiltering customer, ... )
