Re: [nsp] known networks for broadcast ping attacks

Folks who want vendors to change the default changed so that
routers don't - by default - forward directed broadcast should
contact their vendors.  If lots of ISPs speak up,
the vendors generally _will_ listen and make changes/fixes.

I've already been leaning on cisco to do this.  So far, cisco is
indicating "limited customer demand" to change this default.  Those
others of you who are using cisco and want this change made
should speak up to your sales folks and other contacts in cisco.
