DDoS attacks are not necessarily resource-starvation attacks;
even when they are, the resource being exhausted may not be bandwidth.
So this advice is pertinent only to the largest sub-sub-class of DDoS
attacks.

Where the attack is, in fact, an attempt to exhaust all available
bandwidth, it may be used via a botnet or other attack multiplier
such that purchasing sufficient bandwidth to exceed the attack becomes
cost-prohibitive.
