Nice going, Gadi -- let's insult someone who does a good job of  
protecting your network from his customers.

I spend at least 8 hours a week tracking down attacks originating from  
non-BCP38 networks.  This is still a real problem, and the idea that  
BCP-38 is some fad that is irrelevant now ... I have no words for this  
kind of idiocy.  Everyone should be doing BCP-38.  Why don't you apply  
this to your network, instead of sitting around insulting people for  
your incorrect assumptions about their job?
