Eh? Does this idiot know what "scale" means in networking?
"Dominguez, an associate professor in UC San Diego's visual arts department, said the demonstration was an act of "electronic civil disobedience," a field he's been studying for more than a decade and for which he earned tenure in 2006."
An associate prof. at UCSD, specializing in visual arts, managed to get tenure by studying electronic civil disobedience? The mind boggles ... no fucking wonder the UC system can't balance their budget.
If this twat tried to do the same thing to my web site, and I retaliated in kind, I'm fairly certain that he'd whine about me being unfair because I have more bandwidth than him and the UC system ... DDoS doesn't scale, and shouldn't be allowed regardless of cause.
(Anyone at UC Davis know how to train the barn cats not to hit the "post" button before I'm done typing?)
