This is one of the responsibilities of a reflector administrator...to know
his clientelle. If the reflector caters more to modem users, then the ref
admin should setup a transmit and receive max accordingly. There ARE idiots
out there who WILL connect to refs with their transmit max set to 100k or
higher, and in most cases, they will not be allowed on the ref because the
admin had the sense to setup the ref properly.
