Typical incompetence

This sort of thing is all too common for commodity devices, which generally run firmware thrown together by people with no network-engineering experience or training, and no incentive to do things correctly.

I'm sure many here remember the many cases of NTP vandalism (to use Poul-Henning Kamp's phrase), such as the U Wisconsin DOS.
