Using this something like this is a conscious decision of the user. I have personally run Robert Beverley's probes regularly for many years and I am proud to say that both my broadband providers have never allowed source address spoofing. This involves a conscious decision on my part taking into account local network etiquette, my relation to my providers and the local legal situation. It is very very different from the RIPE community deciding to use RIPE Atlas to do this from my network. Daniel
