What is this supposed to prove to anyone? That they can DDOS sites? We already knew that.

DDOS is a good way to show protest, but not cause any long term damage. It gets their attention without harming anyone, and also draws public attention. Almost like the modern day ralley.

Now, they don't always do it for good causes, but thats left to ones opinion.

its a shame but the world will move on as this wasnt one of the big heavy hitters of the internet content stream.
