Very old story from SAH2's frontpage news:

"July 23, 2004
We are now up and running again, during the night we generated 400k results to be sent out. Things might be a bit weird for awhile, somebody decided to launch a denial of service attack yesterday afternoon."

Actually that attack was a TCP Sync flood attack. The firewall wasn't letting any of that traffic through to the servers, but it still caused congestion on the public facing Internet connection.
