We report these incidents to the FBI when there is at least a slim chance
that the perpetrator might be caught. We get a lot of very short lived
attacks (30 minutes or less) that just don't seem to be worth our time to
report to the FBI, since there's usually no data that would give them a
bit of a clue about who might have done it.
