S/RTBH can be rapidly shifted in order to deal with changing purported source IPs, and it isn't limited to /32s.  It's widely supported on Cisco and Juniper gear (flowspec is a better choice on Juniper gear).

If folks don't want to read the presos or search through the archives, that's fine, of course.  The fact is that there are quite a few things that operators can and should do in order to mitigate DDoS attacks; and making the perfect the enemy of the merely good only helps the attackers, doesn't it?
