Only a l33t idiot would claim that, because anybody with kl00 would realize
it's useless for web surfing, because the content gets sent to the spoofed
address (in fact, making sure the spoofed target doesn't notice and throw
an RST packet is part of the challenge ;)

Of course, I'm continually amazed by the number of people of all hat
color persuasions who pretend they have a "Kl00-stick of W00tness" when
it's really a toothpick.  Apparently, they missed the "Objects in mirror
are smaller than they appear" sticker.... ;)

Which begs the question:  What's everybody's favorite "clue-deficit-disorder"
story? :)
