An unremarkable trace route. Comcast has a contract, or peering agreement
with AT&T, whoops, that is now "at&t"; seriously. Since SBC has completed
its purchase of AT&T, and changed the company name to, "at&t", and the
"Deathstar" logo for good measure, there may be some changes in the
routing. I expect that at&t may decide to adjust the routing computations
to spread the load among all of the at&t backbone routers, including the
former SBC backbone routers. Or not. In any case, the old AT&T backbone is
known to Comcast customers for being a routing choke point, prone to high
Right, none of that, nor the lack of responsiveness of the customer host ti
ICMP packets, has a lot of bearing on the spam source.
