On the other hand, if you address the easy ones within your own network, the attackers might switch to types which you can't deal with on your own. 8-( Anyway, you should examine *why* you (or your customers) are attacked, and address that. Everything else is likely cost-effective. Of course, this might mean you have to do without some revenue if you have customers that are DoS magnets for some reason.
