of course, the idea of blocking smurf spoof sites is pretty specious.  how
many folk will go through the effort and burden on the routers to put an
access list in the packet path and yet not be clueful enough to just say
'no ip directed-broadcast' on the same damn edge router insead?

the same ones that'll spend an entire day discussing it.

wait a sec.  on second thought, don't answer that question.

and the ones who never read directions until its too late.
