DoS/DDoS Security-opinions

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I'm researching best practices in network security for denial of
service type threats. Is this type of security something that's best
handled in-house or with commercial intrusion detection/prevention
products or with a managed service - or maybe some combined approach?

Not interested in vendor promotion - just practitioner experience - to
gauge just how big a risk-management problem this is (or isn't).

If you have strong opinions on protection methods for DDoS-type network
intrusions, I'd like to talk to you.
