“Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), is not any form of hacking in any way.
“It is the equivalent of repeatedly hitting the refresh button on a webpage.
“It is, in that way, no different than any ‘occupy’ protest.
“Insteadof a group of people standing outside a building to occupy the area, they are having their computer occupy a website to slow (or deny) service of that particular website for a short time.”
Brilliant, and that’s the substance of a We The People petition, which adds:
“As part of this petition, those who have been jailed for DDoS should be immediatly released and have anything regarding a DDoS, that is on their “records”, cleared.”(My emphasis)
