Not completely true. There is a lot you can do; it's just a mater of what length you are willing to go. We had a huge problem with a script kiddie attacking our second largest forum. Eventually we learned his method of attack and were able to block it. We also learned personal information about him and were able to pursue legal actions.

There are several mitigation systems produced by Cisco, TippingPoint, etc.
