Those "educational" sites which allow residence hall connections to launch

money.  Tough cookies.  This is NOT an unsolvable problem (I can solve it 
with a $1,000 PC running IPFW between the residence hall Ethernet and the 
rest of the campus, or a few statements in a CISCO config) so people saying 
its an intractable problem are lying.  

If anyone at an educational institution tells you that send them to
UCLA  http://www.math.ucla.edu/misc/smurf.html
or Simon Fraser University
or the RFC archive at USC's Information Sciences Institute
or the Computer Emergency Response Team at Carnegie Mellon University

If those universities can handle the problem then all educational
institutions should be able to fix this.
