'Mitigation boxes' like what?

Again, my post had nothing to do with 'mitigation boxes' or 'shiny toys'.  Unless you count routers and switches as 'shiny toys'.

I've never advocated the 'blind application' of any feature, function, mechanism, or 'shiny toy'.

Perhaps you've confused me with someone else.
