I hate to be the bearer of bad news to BS' VC's, but BS moving their
DNS to UltraDNS and hosting to Prolexic was likely not part of the business
plan. "They ain't cheap". The spammers can now theoretically force them
to spend all time and all their money responding to attacks.
The killer here is that they asked a lot of people a year ago whether this
was a good idea and everyone said no. Read John Levine's blog and pointer to a
few of his previous articles. He wasn't the only person they asked. There's a
WHOLE lot more to this than is public.
