Dear Mr Own3r,

Kindly fuck off, leave us alone & do your 'good work' elsewhere.

Thank you.

For the link that is, not for breaking the forum with your leprechauns.

Well, yes. While I agree with this hacker's motives about GoDaddy's support of SPOA and its ramifications and perhaps his gripe about companies privacy policies, the amount of colatteral damage to people that are not involved in these areas that his/her action caused is just NOT acceptable. :thumbdown:

According to the so-called hacker it was not about SOPA and according to GoDaddy.com it was not even the hacker...

The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a "hack" and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS). We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and GoDaddy.com. We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.


Now I would put my money on routing table problems.
