Ok, we are being mailbombed as I write this.
I know, I know, tin foil hats.
I don’t mean to taunt the folks doing this, but 6 messages per minute? C’mon. This system withstood 250k in a 12 hour period about 6 months ago. Thats 347/minute. I won’t tell you what the user load was on the system then, but it wasn’t high. Didn’t even break “1” as I remember ….
Update: BTW, we have a pretty good clue as to who they are. I am sure att.net isn’t going to be happy that their AUP is being violated, badly.
