Funny, ongoing attacks that one wishes to be pubilc about sure sound
"operational" in nature to me.  If one didn't wish to be public, sending
data to the appropriate molassas-agency (CERT, et al) would make sense.
Was anyone yelled at on NANOG for talking about ongoing attacks?  I don't
think so.

Personally, I'm so pleased to see the current commodity nature of domain 
names put to such good use; the internet version of one-hit-wonders/one
trick ponies/etc.
