There were at least 10 hosts sending the stuff, and all I've logged is
the dropped SYN. They could also have been pinging my connection as
fast as 3 times a second, and sending unknown quantities of UDP traffic
One option I have is to pursue the user's ISPs over in the USA and
Netherlands for a damages bill of $60 each, but I'm not sure how far
that would get me.
