I wish the Internet census people would try spoofing from their "botnet" 
and tell us which ISPs allow spoofing. I don't think this will fixed until 
there is a hall of shame or some kind of law requiring this and offenders 
would be fined.

Can't we get homeland security into this? Threat to US national security 
if people can spoof? :P
