Once again, nothing in my post said or referred to bandwidth; in fact, simply throwing bandwidth at the problem won't work, as attackers have access to what are for all practical purposes near-infinite resources.

In future, it might be a good idea to ensure that the points one attempts to make actually apply to the specific post to which one is replying.
