    I suppose the least I could have done was visit Wikipedia before starting this thread. My "expertise" for years was with writing rich-UI client apps and specialized server software that dealt with assloads of data but didn't need to scale to hundreds of users. Only very recently with this new job have I had to get into the severe nitty gritty with networking and internet laws.

    That said, I'm not the first to ponder why Al Qaeda and other organizations seem to be operating websites with impunity.

    Maybe this is why they herd Computer Science students into Java courses nowadays.

    I always thought denial of service was when the bartender cut me off.

    Or when the Servers come down with no prior notice.

    What I've hated more than anything my entire life is the feeling or claim of being too helpless to curb stomp an asshole.

    I prefer to do my asshole stomping away from the computer. buy a ticket, fly to china, go to Uaeloae's house and displace his rusty sherrif's badge with the business end of a baseball bat.

    Maybe my morals have diminished, but if I heard such a thing on the news, I wouldn't grieve, but merely say the shit bastard fuck had it coming.

With 1000+ users this could quickly become a pain in the ass. And it would be done in a way not to impair other use of the PC, especially for playing EQ2.

    A lot of us are on DHCP, so if they block our IP's, they block anyone else that may someday use our address.

    Right?
    Funny, isn't this what LFG is complaining about?

    Funny, you're mentioning this well after the fact. The issue was closed because the activity would have been deemed illegal.

    But on the other hand, if you'd like to clearly explain to us how this website deserves the same disruption that a plat selling website ought to receive, I'm all ears.
