Let's block ping because it's beyond us to secure our network without doing that. Oh, and while we're at it, let's drop traceroutes and then tell people we can't help them because we don't have enough information. For the cherry on top, let's put ssh at the muddy bottom of our QoS list and then blink confusedly when people ask about that keyboard latency that spikes every morning from 9:30 to 11:00. IT departments SUCK.
sorry. I feel better now.
