But they _will_ see you, whether you stealth or not. The only
difference they will see is that in one case the port will be shown as
"closed" and in the other it will be shown as "filtered" or
"stealthed" or whatever. You have seen that a lot of times.
A closed port is just as closed as a stealthed port.
So what is wrong with sticking to the standard if violating it does
not give you any advantage whatsoever?
If it´s good, they´ll stop making it.
