There doesn't seem to be much on this mailing list yet!

This is just to report that we have turned on rate limiting on our
authoritative nameservers and it has reduced the output traffic
resulting from the current attacks to nearly normal levels. The
input traffic has increased, perhaps as a result,

So many thanks to Vernon and Paul for the work they have put in
to give us this.
