In which AT&T fail

AT&T’s story:

DoS attack on one of their customers by part of 4chan. AT&T block 4chan. DoS ends. AT&T unblock 4chan.

Reality:

Someone DoS attacks an AT&T customer. Said person spoofs it so AT&T think it’s coming from 4chan. AT&T block 4chan. Someone with slightly more intelligence at AT&T notices what happened, and yells at everyone until they unblock 4chan.

Blocking 4chan…lol. I dislike /b/tards as much as the next sane person, but like PZ said, gotta respect the terrible might of /b/

UPDATE: Indeed, teh lolz http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2009/07/4chan/

Say, what’s up with people’s respect or fear or whatever of the /b/ board? What does it exactly consist of?

Well, /b/ is the “random” imageboard on 4chan. It gets up towards 200,000 posts a day. And it’s basically where every internet jackass, script kiddy, etc goes (the shock websites get posted frequently, just because, for instance). To anger /b/ is to get DoSed for most sites simply because when /b/ raids, you get so many hits that very few websites can handle it. And then the script kiddies, and the occasional person who actually knows what they’re doing also get involved.

The portion of Anonymous that does stuff just for the hell of it comes, at least initially, from /b/, if you want an example.

And once again, it NEVER fails with the incessant lying, as lying is a way of life for these hacker creeps. I salute AT&T for blocking viruses, trojans and nasty spider scripts, as that is what the REAL truth is as to WHY AT&T has flashed the middle finger [blocked] to 4 Chan. Why should AT&T waste time and energy in dealing with viruses, trojans and uncontrollable script programs emanating from the 4 Chan site?

I don’t condone censorship and I certainly don’t condone lies “in the name of lulz”. The only thing 4 Chan has proven again and again, is that they are infantile and violent. A bunch of two year olds who go on tirades. And just like an out of control two year old, they need some REAL hard slaps from the school of hard knocks.

Any consequences or denial of internet access to AT&T customers due to NAZI actions emanating from 4 Chan [or any other hacker creeps for that matter], I pray that they are caught, rounded up, prosecuted beyond the extent of the law, thrown in a windowless cell and locked up forever until the day they die.

I commend AT&T for taking the step forward and I sincerely hope that other ISP’S follow suit ASAP. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Hackers cause destruction, chaos, waste everyones time and energy. Normal people on the net are SICK AND TIRED of these two year old tantrum antics that 4 Chan displays on a daily basis. These hacker creeps really and truly need to GROW THE F*** UP.

And the above comment is an example of the people who almost (ALMOST) make me support /b/. And feel bad for the rest of 4chan because morons like the above can’t distinguish between /b/ and the less obnoxious boards.
