Various ISPs have been trying lots of different ICMP filters.  You can
see some of the impact on the Internet average graphs from XAffire.

Xaffire/Matrix Systems apparently used ping packets that were the
same size as those being filtered by some ISPs.  According to Xaffire
service providers implementing filters included Cable & Wireless and
Level 3.
