RoadRunner security

A general question to the list about RoadRunner security...

I've been receiving a DNS flood from either a malicious, or badly
configured IP in Taiwan since last Thursday.  I've contacted the ISP
responsible, but if the owner of would mind shutting the
damn thing down I'd be really grateful. :)

I'm filtering it at my firewall but the router the RoadRunner controls
is happily sending the packets to me still and causing slowdown.  After
3 days of convincing them that it wasn't actually my network generatign
the traffic, RoadRunner's front line loonies have told me basically,
nothing we can do to filter that, sorry.

Does anyone have a contact at RoadRunner who has a clue?
