Sad fact is that there are zillions of excuses. Unfortunately I suspect the only way we're going to make any progress on this will be for laws to be passed (or lawsuits to be filed) that impose a financial penalty on ISPs through which these attacks propagate.

Yep, some external force is apparently necessary,
unfortunately.

We've been encouraging, and asking, and measuring intensely
for over a dozen years now, and the application of anti-

remiss.
