" CloudFlare has announced that they're giving all users (free and paid) protection from said attacks with their services." - and there's the meat of this whole post.

Haven't we seen attacks with half a million or more hosts?

Tried it off 3 different local systems, then tried via cellphone web browser, then called someone in another state to verify... yup. No response."
