Yesterday my ISP turned me "off" because a certain "port" responded. They concluded - incorrectly - I was an open something (bot, relay - or who knows - they would not actually say - only hint).

Bottom line: my UDP port 123 was responsive - so I was evil.

Anyway, about 8 hours after receiving "special treatment" - things are back as they were.

Lesson learned: do not test NTP without first blocking UDP port 123 in  the "firewall".
