:) I wish I could take that stance here. As long as people pay their
internet bill I pretty much need to let them do whatever they want; we
assume they'll do dumb or malicious things, and plan accordingly. We
also have to try to not interact with them.
It might be easier to have a simple, open network design and employ a
SWAT team to handle abusers.
