Admittedly, discussions about how to mitigate a botnet are less on topic than discussing how to fix a BGP wedgie. On the other hand, it's very hard to launch a DDoS big enough to need mitigating unless you have a botnet to launch it from. Even Mafiaboy knew that one. So if you get rid of the botnets, you get rid of the 2AM alerts that a DDoS is in progress. And 2AM alerts are operational, at least in my book.
