For whatever reason Cisco's will TAKE null routes to classful broadcasts,
however, they will not propagate them.  You'll need a Juniper/GateD
Box/whatever to push out the routes...

And you would only want to null/discard the /32 of the actual ampilifier,
not the entire netblocks I would imagine.  If you null/discarded the
entire /24...well that would make some quite unhappy customers...The
object should be not to stop the smurf once it is ongoing, but to prevent
it from ever happening...

On another note, Troy if you need help with anything...Let me know I'd
like to get as many amp sites off the net as possible..
