London teen pleads guilty to Spamhaus DDoS

I don't condone DDoS attacks, but as it was against Spamhaus, then good on him..

Those bastards blacklisted an entire /24 subnet I was on due to one spammer & refused to lift the block when I complained. Wrote sternly worded letters to their upstream provider (and their provider's backbone provider) telling them I would hold them to account for allowing business destroying practices, and the block was removed in under 48 hours.

Never did get an apology from them.
