Maybe NANOG needs to implement a system where you have to log
in to a web page with your NANOG meeting passcode in order to
get a usable IP address. Then, when an infected computer shows
up we will know exactly whose it was. Might even be interesting
for a researcher to interview every infected party and figure
out why it is happening even among a supposedly clueful group.
