Don't let those North Americans bully a poor Russian network operator,
Alex. You too can use the whois database at whois.arin.net to find out who
owns 129.72 and 129.74 so you can email them and ask for them to turn of
directed broadcast. It's not just a database for North Americans, you
know.

P.S. in case you don't understand the English above, it was mostly sarcasm
directed at those other guys, not at you. And you might want to send this
URL to the network operators where the smurf flood is originating
