It seems to me that the only way to stop IP spoofing is to implement a small amount of regulation (ugly word, I know). If MCI, Sprint, and all other larger players simply stated that one cannot connect to their network without a router audit of some kind, most of these problems would go away. If I were Joe ISP and I was told that my carrier is allowed to, at any time, audit my router config, and shut me down if I didn't have the rules set right, I would be pretty sure to make sure I got things right. Just a thought...
