I got DDOS'd over a stupid email list spat (I banned an obnoxious 
spammer, he picked up my email address off of past messages 'recieved 
from') a few years ago, it just about totally knocked my ISP's backbone 
connections (a couple DS3's) offline.    ISP apologized but said if it 
happens again we can't afford to keep you as a customer.
