I respectfully disagree. Network engineers have to keep up with many
tasks and preventing DoS/DDoS should be the responsibility of
everyone. I see more folks worried about spam than they are actual

That said, when speaking of DDoS, I believe they are mostly the same bots.

And yes, while there is a lot we can do to mitigate DDoS, we are that helpless. All our strategies show as much.
