How would you force everyone to switch this "on"?
BTW why do you think that everyone everywhere is both so
smart and cooperative to protect _you_ on _their_
routers? I always thought that if the protection
lawyer is close to the attack target, and even better -- if
the protection is owned and controlled by the target itself --
then the chances of protection to work and to be maintained
properly are better. Otherwise -- whom to blame? ;)
