I would imagine that a site such as theirs has to be a little sensitive 
to the threat of a DDoS attack.

Rather than avoiding the symptoms, perhaps a better solution would be to 
attack the cause. Try contacting NTL to chase and block off the culprits.

Better still, perhaps we should show those ignorants/miscreants the 
better ways by letting them discover linux?
