It seems to me that the same|similar dataset of open resolvers to be 
used for amplification attacks is also being used for this sort of 
thing, and the overall effect is not large enough to indicate my 
resources are a target.

What I cant figure out is what is the target and how this attack method 
is any more effective then the others.
