Just to ask, what is the expected effect on DDoS attacks if folks
implemented BCP38?

A moot point these days.  After all the years it has been out 
(15 years: https://tools.ietf.org/html/bcp38) it can be seen 
that many are not implementing it.  Those that care (NANOG type 
folks) already have deployed it and those that don't care have 
not and will not.  I have met a lot of the latter in recent 
years.  Maybe I'm getting cynical?


What's going on?  Isn't everybody headed to the beach or 
the mountains for Memorial Day weekend?  ;-)
