* steve () telecomplete co uk (Stephen J. Wilcox) [Wed 13 Aug 2003, 10:58 CEST]:
In your world DoS traffic would be free to roam the networks as it
pleased without being throttled sensibly at ingress?

How many people are actually following RFC3514?  (In other words, how do
you separate DoS traffic from normal traffic and define sensibly)

Or the dumb [wannabee] IT guy runs some telnet/ftp/filesharing service
without passwords and its ok for the whole world to access the private
system coz its his fault?

Whose fault can it possibly be besides his?  You have to expect others
to be psychic to believe otherwise.
