Because you haven't nullrouted shit.  You're just tagging the IP with a
specific BGP community and not all networks will respect your tagging.
The ones that don't allow the traffic to pass right on through to your
network, and due to BGP convergence that there will always be a working
route this way.  Again, I ask: how hard is it to type "ip route
208.64.120.197 255.255.255.255 Null0"?

For someone who is "first and leading in DDoS Protection Solutions" you
sure seem to not be able to effectively nullroute, no offense.
