I think you misread my message. My ISP is *very* proactive, and the
owner fully endorses what I'm using their bandwidth for...I've been
with them for several years now. That said, I believe it's my
obligation to make efficient use of the bandwidth I've been allocated
(at this point, all that I've needed) and therefore I believe it's
important to figure out a way to mitigate these attacks.
