"me too"; for 2 of my old (smaller sized) customers in the last 4 or 5
Nothing seemed to work and the immediate financial losses rapidly hit
over 10k Euros in both cases, so switching was by far the easier
I was amazed, but it definitely worked, I'll grant them that.

Both were "normal" and non-spammy setups, correctly configured and well
run by experienced netops. They just figured it was faster/safer
(financially) to move, all things considered.

Caused a panic at the time but until it happens again, 100% success :)


error: wit pool entropy approaching zero. system halted. again.
