Are DDOS atacks still a major threat--as much as they might have been a couple years ago?

I think DDOS attacks still a major threat
Heading into 2010, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are most worried about botnet-driven distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, according to a report released Tuesday.
Jun.30, 2010 Whirlpool is Australia’s largest technology forum and each day thousands of people contribute to discussions on the site, ranging from not only technology issues but also covering a wide range of topics.
I am one of them and yesterday night noticed the Whirlpool was down. Usually when Whirlpool goes down a maintenance message comes up but this time the site was just timing out. Figuring it was just heavy maintenance or something a little more involved I went to bed hoping it’d be up in the morning.
Turns out Whirlpool has been the target of a distributed denial of service attack (DDOS) over the last 24 hours or so.
