No. Thank you for calling me on not explaining well.
I suggest that the guy is right. People should tajke care of their security first before going out and shouting at the world. That said, I also state that he is probably not in touch with what's been going on in the past few years.
Meaning, botnets *do* use spoofing, and DNS amplification attacks. The threat is not "theoretical" for a few years now and he may simply not be in on it.
As to preaching BCP38, well... it's not an easy leap of thought to make, that your security is tied into the state of security of a box sitting half-way around the world. But that's the case.
