$MYIPTABLES --append INPUT --match unclean --jump DROP
has been at the start of my rules for a long time. I wasn't seeing
any *serious* problems browsing the web, etc., but was getting a few
"unable to connect to host" pages. Some of them went away on refresh,
but some sites I just couldn't get to. On the other hand, that's
normal for the Internet.
