I'm very confused that why people on the list are suggesting RRL (even
BCP38) to the victim of DoS attack? If I remember correctly, the goal of
both RRL and BCP38 is to reduce the chance of participating the attack as a
innocent helper.

In the introduce of RRL (https://kb.isc.org/docs/aa-01000)  , it goes :
"RRL helps mitigate DNS denial-of-service attacks by reducing the rate at
which authoritative servers respond to high volumes of malicious queries.

Please correct me .
