A modest proposal

That's what bothers me most - I have a suspicion that Alexis didn't even
have to go out of his own domain to look for perpetrators. Then again, I
may be wrong.

Nope, the packets were definitely coming in from the outside (and not
out his MCI t1 and in his Sprint t1), but *nothing* like 2kpps.

We later got a good fraction of that with a deliberate test attack,

2kpps is only 80kbytes/sec, though... Still not straining a t1.
