What it will do is, help protect smaller hosts/networks targeted by less determined DDoS kiddies -- the type who'll realize "d'oh, I can't reach this anymore!" and move on to to their next target. And if nothing else, it will protect smaller people w/ 95% burstable pipes, whose upstreams aren't willing lend a hand when they're under attack, from having their monthly bandwidth bills skyrocket. -adam
