Probably you think ICMP is dangerous too. There are a lot of brain dead 
admins who blocks ICMP packets and they wonder why connections to some 
websites are broken or if they administrate the packet filter before a 
webserver they wonder why some user grouches they wouldn't get a 
connection to the web server.
