Good point.

Along the same line, I would like to point out this Ira Winkler article on
the topic:

"Not Much Genius in DHS's Einstein 3.0 Plan"
http://www.internetevolution.com/author.asp?section_id=515&doc_id=165249

Especially the closing paragraph:

"For everyone's protection, there should be requirements on the appropriate
parties to remove offending systems from the Internet. Nobody has the right
to endanger others. However, until Chertoff decides to push for this
necessary measure, I recommend he pick up a few books on basic firewall
security in the meantime."
