Our web server computer has been under massive DOS attack for about the past week.
A DOS attack is when some criminal fucktard gets a bunch of computers to make lots of requests over and over again, it clogs up the internet pipes and makes it so that people are unable to get through. This is similar to when a radio station runs a call in contest and thousands of people call at the same time. Some people get through, some people get a busy signal, and most people get an error saying all circuits are too busy to even give you a busy signal.
Why are these fucktards attacking our site?
At this point I do not know. There has been some discussion saying that some disgruntled cry baby is mad at the furry / anime role play group that uses our chat rooms to hang out. He is mad at them, and wants to show his power, and wants them to respect his author-a-tie.
At one point someone who hides behind the screen name exor at the time, told me that we should allow hate speech in our chat rooms, and he does not think it’s fair that we do not allow someone to create a room and screen name that says “Nig*** are Mon**” blah blah blah.
This appears to be a hate crime as far as I can tell. However I am not sure that these are the real reasons… I don’t even think the bot network operators are even sure what they real reason is that this person has set up these attacks.
