Not sure, but you actually entered in here to a subthread of the 
original conversation, this one about other possible ways of dealing 
with black hole "ICMP-munchers" in a pre-emptive fashion.  I had a 
brainstorm that I thought would be workable, which is what we were 
discussing here.  Apparently, it turns out my idea was no good. ;-)

The original discussion about MS blocking ICMP to their own servers, 
which is the discussion it sounds like you are looking for, is over 
that-a-way... *points*
