Apologies if this has already been discussed enlist -- I took a quick look though the archives and didn't see it. I believe that the reason for not allowing things like tests that send spoofed packets is that it might violate the AUP that participants have with their ISPs / be viewed by participants ISPs as an attack. So, what about having a checkbox in the Probe Settings that says something like: "I have no AUP with my ISP or I'm fine to violate my AUP. Run intrusive or dangerous tests on this probe" ? This would create a subset of probes that could be used for more interesting tests, an d would allow for greater visibility into things.
