| Sounds reasonable to me. My point was that decrementing the IP TTL,

Sure, why not give ISPs the weapons with which to shoot
themselves in the foot when their goals may be met in ways
that are not quite so destructive?

Tell them they are adults and REALLY shouldn't turn that knob,
then give it to them.  Works for me.  --:)
