In some cases users decrease their MTU until the connection works instead
of respecting the wish of the packet filter admin to ignore the site.
Sometimes your packets are too big for some parts of the net without
fragmenting so you get a message that you should reduce your packet size.
If you block such messages, you can't connect with the target. These
messages are delivered by ICMP so blocking of ICMP is very stupid.
