Knowing the Randy's research, i am sure that Randy will be doing great work
this time too. Being a network researcher I can not wait more to see results
of this experiments.
But, even then I dont think it was a real smart thing to do without prior
permission.


And yes, it applies in the network world as well. When we pre-announce "We
will be doing network scans from IP address w.x.y.z", we have a lot of
users
who will just blindly firewall off that IP rather than fixing their real
issue
they know the scan will detect...

I think if this could have been the case in the network security research
then we would not have some this far (though it still is not that far :) )
in the field. People have contributed specifically for research in the past
and I hope will remain doing so.
