"nice network you have there, shame if something were to happen to it"

one day they may be the target themselves then they can explain to
shareholders their part in enabling so much business disruption

Sadly it seems there will always be an exploding Pinto on the internet

Perhaps Akamai could present them with a bill for unwanted traffic
as they're monetising ddos they may as well charge both sides and
having dropped Krebs due to the disruption a court may agree damages
