Yes perhaps a little harsh...

Oddly enough it wasn't more than an hour after I posted that than I
was ping flooded. This went on for some time.

I fired up ethereal to find I was being ping flooded from 64.142.14.4
and 64.142.14.6. I saved a large portion of this ethereal capture to
sen to the provider (sonic.net).

Then just on a lark I checked the headers of Mr Shultz's last
post and the first hop was... You guested it:


Received: from twain.marion28 (64-142-14-4.dsl.static.sonic.net [64.142.14.4])
(authenticated bits=0)
by b.mail.sonic.net (8.13.8.Beta0-Sonic/8.13.7) with ESMTP id l0LJbAdk027981
(version=TLSv1/SSLv3 cipher=DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA bits=256 verify=NO)
for <opensuse@xxxxxxxxxxxx>; Sun, 21 Jan 2007 11:37:10 -0800


I can't believe the guy was so petty and foolish to flood me from his own
static IP.
