...backing down a bit on this...
The whole LC team has been through a harrowing couple of days dealing 
with this, and it's not "their mistakes". Yes, this does have, in some 
cases severe, repercussions for us and there are ways to ameliorate the 
problem (failover servers in different regions, for instance, something 
easy to accomplish with aws). But pointing the finger at RunRev for a 
dDos attack isn't fair.

Heh. Yep. You'd have *different* problems.
