    This is part of an email I got from them(and presumably a lot of you did also)

    Now the question is...
    HOW MUCH OF A N00B DO YOU NEED TO BE TO THINK YOU NEED NEW SERVERS AND NOT REALISE YOU ARE BEING DDoS'ed??

    WTF :eek:

    yes, every site gets DDoS'ed, but usually the admins notice it and don't need a tech guy to tell them that. and if you read carefully they CLEARLY say that they moved servers because they ASSUMED their old ones where not enough and then they realised that it was not a servers problem and it was an attack... so i can also ASSUME they are no good...

    sorry Ericsson, i respect you, but on this one you are not right, they really blew it and showed everybody how much of a n00b they are...

    fuck, even I can see when one of my sites is under an attack... increase of traffic, decrease of revenue, i go look at the logs and see what's going on, i will not jump to another server first and look for the problem later.

    and i'm just one guy who deals with a crap load of websites, and they are a bunch of guys that deal with ONE website...

    PS: this is just a thread in the lounge, if i thought it was important enough i would post it elsewhere, like that one thread you showed me.
