    Meh, the DDOS attack didn't bother me all too much. If anything, I'm surprised they spent large amounts of money on something pointless like art websites. I would have been much more impressed if they attacked websites like fox news and cnn.

    You don't want to encourage them. They might take that as a challenge, and then where would we all find our unbiased news?

    I'm OP.
    I have this neat little button that says "Close This Thread". Nothing more.

    Really I'm no one in particular.

    Gonna ask people to calm down with the name calling towards Dragoneer in the thread.

    I think they're going to use it for funds to move their data to cloud based servers? I can't really remember the details since the gofundme page got shut down and that's what had all the info on it.

    DDoS wise, attacks are still coming and going afaik. Our IRC server was getting hit earlier at least. I don't know about the other sites. I saw some tweets about InkBunny going up and down but I don't know how accurate those are, since sometimes a site appearing down can just be on a user's end rather than the site's end. If GreenReaper want's to clarify on that he can.

    I do recall Dragoneer mentioning that in a tweet.

    Are they still the same "size" so to speak, or more intermittent? You'd think someone would have taken responsibility for the attacks by now. More so if their goal was to piss off people by hitting these sites.

    I haven't had a real chance to talk to the dev team since of the time zone difference but it appears more intermittent.

    I'm a sucker for graphs. it'd be neat to have some data and graphs to show the difference between peak hours and the attacks, but I can completely understand why that might not be feasible to release.

    Ah, interesting. Well GL to them I suppose.
    Is there a list anywhere of sites that have been/are being targeted?
