Does anyone know what or who is responsible for the junk bombarding
the public DCC servers?  Some of it consists of empty UDP/IP packets.
Others consists of junk that causes the servers to complain
"header length 61951 instead of 46"

I finally reached an ISP that seemed to be responsible for the empty
packets.  They did not tell me what they were doing, but they stopped.

Most of the bad header length junk has come from 206.171.8.0/24
but 209.153.212.10 and 12.1.96.5 have also been implicated.
206.171.8.0/24 is owned by PacBell and delegated to Joseph Zott
I've tried sending mail to PacBell and jaz@itvcorp.com without success.
The reverse DNS for 206.171.8.0/24 is ancient and wrong.
