Operationally, they have a large impact and they responded well.
If you only knew how many DDOS attacks your providers (all

You say "it is the same issue, just a different flavor". I am
wondering if you meant the problem Tuesday morning is the same problem
you had weeks ago, or if the problem you had weeks ago is the same as
the problem you are having with Overture / Yahoo / SBC? It is unclear

sure we weren't being blocked before we started pointing any fingers
asking any stupid questions yet we still were ignored and could of
