we did.. on port 80 of all ports.. syn flood..it was quite tricky to stop.. took us offline for 4 days... our ISP got it worse than us as whatever was happening was resetting their routers because of flawed IOS. Eventually they fixed that and we got a really good ipchains script to take care of things and it was all ok. Probably one of the trickiest attacks to deal with.. we worked out it came from a DOS Net (IRC Group) on a IRC server.. there are whole channels full of "infected" machines people can just post IPs in the channel and have them DOS'd.. very disturbing..

Only through my employment with Jelsoft. Our servers were DDOSed intermittently from October 28th through around Christmas. It is probably the single most reason why vBulletin 3 hasn't been finalized yet.
