For most RASen and routers its a single configuration statement, and far 
less complex than most all other RASen and router configurations. In many 
cases RPF is enabled by default (and imho should be enabled by default 
by many more vendors).

Your job as a good netizen is not to allow shit to be injected at your

expect the community to become less and less tolerant of bad netizens.
