Shirley there are 10000! (about 10^35000) permutations to consider if using brute force? Although a quick shufti at Wikipedia tells me there is a (n^2 x 2^n) solution but that still comes in at a whopping 10^3000.

Also, a DDOS would be more like a whole bunch of people standing in your way preventing you from going where you want, which would - certainly in my opinion - be significantly more than petty obstruction.
Yup, sounds like a legitimate demonstration to me.
