slow the dos down if even that.
If you make it too hard, they'll give up. So take what steps you can.

What concerns me about this thread is that by doing nothing, it makes the choice of UNIX as a secure OS less credible. One of the strengths of open source is that it allows rapid response to threats. By not taking what steps you can, you risk undermining that point.I figured it was worth a shot to ask. Ill just wait it out for now. Eventually they will go away. They can try to take us out the game but unixhideout isnt going anywhere. So they just better get used to being second place.
My two cents, of course.
