Not sure why you are attacking our site, and I am not sure that those who are unleashing these attacks really know either.
I did get the chance to chat with 3 different screen names, I would call them three different people, but I think all three were the same person – but not really sure. There seemed to be a few different issues this person or people were spouting off as reasons for disliking our site, but I don’t think any of those reasons are the real truth of why this guy decided our site should be attacked. I am guessing at this point that some guy found himself not getting the attention or affection from one of the other users in the chat room. I am assuming, that he felt disrespected by one or more individuals who hang out in some of groups that frequent our chat site. It would appear to me that this guy was so angry at being cast aside by someone that he decided he was going to make threats, and start harassing people. He wanted to show that he deserved respect, and that he is powerful. Exor / Imposter – are you shedding a tear because you had an online girlfriend with a fake name using a fake picture who virtually cheated on you with a virtual other person?
In this journey of power mongering, he may have gotten some of what he wanted, but at a price that way exceeded the value of what was gained in my humble opinion.
Assuming that this person is the same three screen names I received messages from, you really confuse me as to what your point is. At one point you said that we should allow for racial hate speech in our system, and you tried to force that through hacking and setting up rooms with words that were disturbing to many others, and statements that are explicitly not allowed by our rules and terms of service. If you recall, I told you that you are free to have your opinion, and if you wanted to start your own web site and post big hateful messages about whatever races you think deserve to be slurred, then you have that right. However we do not allow for people to post big messages like the ones you were trying to leave in our system. The scsc community does not want to see big messages like you posted about Nigxxrs are Mxxxx – it is a rule set that applies to all across the board.
Then in another message, at another time in the lobby, you state that we should not harbor the furry role play group in our chat rooms. You state that we will be forced to make them move elsewhere, and you know that your attacks are shutting down access to 40 web sites on our server.
You say that we will not be able to afford to keep protecting the anime rp group. I do not know what this group has done to you, or why you seem hellbent on stalking them and committing hate crimes in the name of harassing them. Part of me would like to know, but I want the whole and complete truth, not just a version that someone has created in their mind. Without the whole truth of the situation, I’d rather not waste my time on figuring out why, but I would like to focus on some other aspects of what you have been doing.
When these attacks fist occurred, I thought to myself – why. Why would this guy be trying to DOS our web site? If he hates the fact that we do not allow hate speech. If he hates some people in the anime rp group, why would he decide that such a broad attack affecting so many was necessary? Surely this guy does not realize how many people he is affecting and in what ways. If this is to get your point across, and show you are all powerful and a force to be reckoned with, and someone that everyone should be very careful not to piss off; then you proved your point.
But, in proving your point, you showed much more about yourself than I think you really wanted.
People that wield great power must realize it’s potential, and only use it in careful, calculated ways that take into consideration all of the ramifications of using their powers. Often times the line between a super hero good guy and an evil despised villain is not the power they have, but how they use those powers, and the considerations of the collateral damages. The first attack you launched made me think you may be ignorant as to the effects of your attack, but your messages the next day in the lobby showed that you were well aware of all the other sites you were hurting, and all the people that were suffering communication breakdown as a result of your abuse of telecommunications.
The first time we chatted, we disagreed, but at least there was a reasonable discussion. You made a point, I understood what you were saying, and I said that I did not think you were crazy, and I can see how a reasonable person would come up with those opinions, however we would not be changing our rules about hate speech being allowed to be promoted using our site. You stood by your convictions, and you threatened to go tell a bunch of your “friends” to attack us based upon some lies.
It seems to me that you are not all powerful. You and I know that just about anyone can do what you did. You are actually a coward. A wimp that sends others to do damage in the name of your fake name. You hide behind other people’s keyboards and think you are so cool, but you have only proven what a whiny cry baby you are. You have only shown that you are willing destroy the lives of groups of other people just to have some power play feeling. You are a pathetic individual.
DOS attackers need to consider the collateral damages. Is the juice worth the squeeze?
You know, some groups who perpetuate DOS attacks have some ethics and morals, heck some of their attacks are based upon ethics and morals. Where are your ethics when you knowingly ask others to attack a site, knowing that it will take down other sites with it? You get people to attack a site because you want three people to fear your wrath, and you do this knowing that you will take down the ability for 200 other people to communicate. You know that you are disrupting hundreds of other people’s conversations, and ruining the time they have. Is this your real goal? It must be, because you know you are doing it, and you even come to the lobby to show off that you have done it. Yet you still do it without a real name, still hiding behind a fake nick, and hiding behind other people’s keyboards.
You know, when a DOS attack is done a place like McDonalds – most likely they are the only ones affected. It is unlikely that some large corporation is sharing web server space with 100 other small businesses. When a group hits a small company with a DOS – it is hurting many more people and businesses than they probably think about.
Your recent attacks seriously hurt dozens of businesses that had nothing to do with your squabble with some cartoon screen name in a chat room. You hurt a lot of honest, hard working people, just to prove a point, that most are unsure of.
To the hackers that got duped into helping this guy launch these attacks:
I hope that you will do more research about the victims of these attacks. The ripple affects of your weapons go far beyond the intended targets in situations like these. I also hope that you guys will be careful about who you believe, and how much you believe them. This guy told me that he was going to go and tell lies to other hackers in order to get them to do his bidding. If you are trying to be hacker with a cause, don’t get duped and let someone who acts like they are your friend convince you to attack the wrong place for the wrong reason. You will likely not know the true reason in situations like these, and to think that people could convince you attack targets that really should not be attacks, and dupe you into hurting a bunch of other unintended targets – well you really should be more responsible with your weapons.
There is a point when a certain amount of collateral damage turns a wanna be good guy into a despicable irresponsible terrorist. The amount of collateral damage in ratio to the offense of the intended target will likely vary from situation to situation. I simply suggest you think harder about the other people and businesses that your attacks affect. When people lose the ability to put food on their table and pay their rent because you were convinced to attack some other web site on a server that you knew could not handle it – who is more of a bad guy? The person you were trying to attack or the person who took out 20 more people, or 200 more people unleashing a weapon of mass destruction?
