Re: SMURF amplifier block list

On the contrary; while it won't have the effect of ingress filters, it
will prevent downstreams of anyone receiving the feed from USING those
smurf sites, and it will disrupt connectivity to them in general.  If
enough people adopted the feed, it would have a reasonable effect.

Then again, filtering any packets to or from x.x.x.255 would have a
similar but more profound effect.  Anyone who actually uses a .255
address for a host is asking for trouble anyways.
