said by Steve:Presently the no.'s here looking at each individual IP hardley constitutes a DDOS.
This is intended for everybody but the OP.
It's not unheard of for an utterly unknown person to claim unwanted attention from a single IP address to post a note in a security forum, prompting a swift and helpful reaction from the troops of said security forum.
This has, in the past, directed unwanted attention to that single IP from multiple IPs of forum members.
In some (but not all) cases, this attention is unwarranted; who knows the name for this phenomenon?
