    Lol no. GBAtemp isn't nearly as big as those sites.

    Wow. Now they've turned into a bunch of douches. The sad thing is, many people can do this if they studied their stuff. Lulzsec is the only one that took the time to study.

    So... do we deserve this?

    The temp may not be as big as those sites, but all it takes is a mention and some convincing.
    Unfortunately, the internet was never safe to begin with. I think we all knew something like this would happen eventually. I hope they get caught soon.

    I'm still surprised there was no attack on Blizzard, do they love them? Lol

    Or maybe they know that if they attack Blizzard (home to over 15m players), everyone will target them. So they are playing safe by targeting weak gaming sites like Minecraft, League Of Legends...etc

    Fix your sentence to "most gamers".

    I won't mind if they hack an MMO I play, because there barely is any that I play looool.

    I'm starting to think there should be one thread for all hacks, because it's like they hack 3 sites every week.

    its not like those mmos were doing anyone much harm now, right?

    they'll just hack whatever is easy enough to hack and might get enough media attention.

    so nothing will happen here.

    add to that, they are slowly starting to get annoyed with ddos attacks right now.
    a german court decided some days ago, that ddos counts as computer sabotage and could be punished with up to 5 years of prison...
    so yeah, chances are that, with them doing this stuff so often and in public, ddos might soon be considered quite the crime in a few parts of the world.

    DDoS != hacking

    seriously guys, chill out

    some sites were unavaible for 30min~1 hour, no big deal. People couldn't play EVE or Minecraft for that same time, well read a book while you wait. It's not like a maintenance would take less than that, right?

    For now I think I will leave it at some people would do well to read up on some of the group dynamic, gang psychology and similar things although whether you want to jump straight to *pathys is a different matter.

    Personally I am going to maintain my detached outlook on things.
