So far I followed this very interesting and insightful thread as an
observer, but here I must disagree. It's not about right or wrong,
everybody has to make its own descicion about whats right or wrong for
him. I respect both arguments: RFC-compliance is important, but some
admins are concerned about what packets are spewed out from their boxes
What about a compromise like this: In general allow RFC-compliant
traffic, but thightly control REJECTs and some ICMP traffic with --limit
and DROP the rest, this should help alot against DoS (if this is at all
possible with REJECTs).
