I still do not understand why the ISP hosting the user is incapable of detecting an attack going through their network. The traffic is quite distinct and abnormal and as such that would have no problem at all of detecting, temporarily shutting down the connection and warning the end user, before enabling it again. Most of this stuff should really be a simple fine, administered in much the same way as parking tickets ie seriously, how many people go to jail for years for illegally obstructing some ones driveway.
