from the article:
"Some ISPs, overwhelmed by the volume of traffic, are using reflective routing
to reduce their own loads. When traffic destined for another ISP's network
arrives at the router, reflective routing does not send the traffic on to the
destination ISP but bounces it back where it came from, further complicating
the work of the Internet's routers. "
into each day a little light(heartedness) must fall, you just
made my day.
