needed to be tested, I used to monitor a range of sites that I thought would
never notice the extra load (CNN, yahoo, amazon, etc.)
An angry letter from someone to managment, caused an order to be sent out:

Apparently after yahoo got DOSed, they started checking, and found a
suspicious number/frequency of pings from our site.
So, I'd suggest to ask for permissions before pinging, cause you never know
