Re: Poor handling by sonic.net support - DDoS attack

I just had a thought that as strange as it may sound. Let's say that a sonic.net customer was being DDoS so that sonic.net either shuts their connection off or terminated their relationship with the customer. What happens if we had a disgruntled customer, we've heard about disgruntled employees and this disgruntled customer happens to be a hacker and basically he/she launches a attack on sonic.net's network and/or servers or even sonic.net brothers/sisters networks and/or servers as a act of retaliation and then assuming that if sonic.net blocks him, he has has a unlimited amount of sources to launch the attack. What would sonic.net do then?

The "shut down the victim" policy is troubling. I've been DDoSed a few times and none of them were personal or even intentional. It was a Windows virus with broken load distribution that was popular around 2006. My computer was targeted only because it had ports open that it was interested in hacking.
