1.) Please snip your posts.

2.) There are adventages to both, "Stealthed" means no reply so atleast it
appears thats the box is down to the kiddies, and the box can't be used
in a man in the middle DoS (you spoof the victims IP and send a packet to
a closed port, so for every packet that you DoS the man in the middle the
victim you are spoofing also gets hit). But it is quite annoying waiting
a long time for no reply, "stealth" is probably better.
