I'm not saying UUNet should install whatever filters I want on their
routers.  I'm just saying the net would be a MUCH nicer place if NSP's all
did ingress filtering on their customer connections.  If current routers
can't handle the load this would create, then NSP's need to find vendors
willing to deliver the necessary power, or they need to rethink the way
they design their networks.
