"Packet loss at hop X in traceroute/mtr does not necessarily point to a
problem at hop X."

Good one.

Also, security as a whole seems to be confusing for folks. They've seen "Firewall" with Harrison Ford and therefore the FW is some secret master voodoo widget that only people from Area 51 can operate. They don't understand "header manipulation" vs "payload".
