…and for a brief period of time, when WhatIsMyIP turned on their DDoS protection, the internet came screeching to a complete halt.

I suspect there’s an enormous number of “admins” out there who’ve built automation around their services that are somehow dependent upon WhatIsMyIP to tell them what their own public IP address is.

I can’t begin to express how poor that practice is.
