Re: From what it looks like here:
said by fatness:This part of his statement brings in to question whether the jerks at 4Chan didn't engineer the mess themselves for the publicity:
Now 4chans founder, Moot, has admitted the whole thing was kind of his fault.
For the past three weeks, 4chan has been under a constant DDoS attack, Moot wrote in an afternoon update. We were able to filter this specific type of attack in a fashion that was more or less transparent to the end user.
Unfortunately, as an unintended consequence of the method used, some Internet users received errant traffic from one of our network switches. A handful happened to be AT&T customers.
Were glad to see this short-lived debacle has prompted renewed interest and debate over net neutrality and internet censorshiptwo very important issues that dont get nearly enough attentionso perhaps this was all just a blessing in disguise.
Aside from that, Ill also add that there is some big news due later this week. Keep an eye on the News page, Twitter, and global message for updates.
