How about releasing the ruleset via torrent or something similar. Anything=
=20
that you could do to distribute the load and location would make a ddos=20
attack less effective. While there might not be a lot of people on this lis=
t=20
who can use their server to take on the entire DDOS for you, there are a LO=
T=20
of servers here that could participate in a pool.

Maybe a DNS round robin?

Just some ideas.
