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
http://www.cs.sfu.ca/CC/Hypermail/cmpt-471/0008.html
or the RFC archive at USC's Information Sciences Institute
ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2267.txt
or the Computer Emergency Response Team at Carnegie Mellon University
http://www.cert.org/advisories/CA-98.01.smurf.html

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