I really hate the fact there is so many stupid admins who would block ICMP 
because they think its evil, while they dont see the overwhelming goodness in 
a protocol like ICMP. I dont think they even know what it stands for and what 
its for, I noticed a lot of the mailservers are Postfix or (s)eXchange. One 
would have thought that at least the Linux admins would known what they are 
doing. Although it possible that a number of them are caused by the infamous 
Cisco PIX bug.
