do that many networks really allow spoofing? i used
to think so, based on hearsay, but rob beverly's
things are a lot better than they used to be, arbor's
last survey echos same. are rob's numbers inconsistent
with numbers anyone else believes to be true?
i think you unfairly characterize UW's work,
but i also think you make questionable inferences
regarding the extent of spoofing, which seems more
relevant to nanog.

seems that some folks in the R&E community, with institutional support

take even rudimentary steps toward providing a level of integrity in
routing by teaching students that spoofing IP space is ok. This whole
thing works at all because so few people use/deploy/maintain BCP-38
compliance. This was an eye-opener for me.
