the reason I choose 60 is, it is on responder. You can be more accommodating on responder. If the fear is DDOS, the difference between 60 and 40 is probably more like a bandaid. You may need more sophisticated knobs fight a real DDOS.

It can be changed later too. However, if there is a strong feeling it should less, lets go for 42:)
