I find it distressing when Network Operators are willing to encourage DDoS'ing of a site.  Any site.  Especially on an operational list, where politics are specifically prohibited.

You don't like Wikileaks, that's between you & Julian.  A DDoS affects the infrastructure of multiple networks, users, other websites, etc., etc.  Most people who read the last sentence thought to themselves that is beyond obvious.  It is a shame you do not understand it.

Put another way, perhaps you should take your own 230gr.
