Yes, I think you were Cc:ed on the message sent to me.

I find it odd that this type of advertising works.  I would expect
actual victims to confuse it with extortion.  ("I have heard that you
were under attack and suffered an outage.  For a small fee, we can
ensure that this never happens again.")

By the way, does anybody know how Afilias prices in-protocol
reflective attacks which fail to make the zone unavailable? 8-/
