When you get in the middle of a DDOS I guess you don't want anybody to do anything because it might block a site. It's sad to see your life revolves around and falls apart over access to one site. I hope the site stays up so you don't come back.
After reading subrand0m 1st post, I couldn't agree you more.

The press release is a bunch of crap that at&t is throwing out there to cover up for them trying to cencer the interent, I am willing to bet they cracked under pressure. Also as a side note, ONE SERVER CAN NOT DDOS PEOPLE.
Yes it is a conspiracy where everybody is lying. Oh no look out ATT is going to shut down the internet. The Aliens that have been covered up are ready to take over the earth in their flying saucers too. Oh and the Mayan calendar is ending so the world will end in 2012.

AT&T says Web site block was not censorship
NEW YORK (AP) - AT&T Inc. blocked freewheeling Web site 4chan.org this weekend, leading to accusations of censorship, but the reason for the action turned out to be a routine security measure.
The Web forums at 4chan are full of explicit images, and the site has been cited as the source of several Internet pranks. Internet users speculated on Twitter and in other forums that AT&T, the country's largest Internet service provider, was overstepping its rights by blocking the site.
The phone company blocked access to 4chan on Friday to protect broadband customers from a "denial of service" attack, which floods targets with meaningless traffic, AT&T spokesman Michael Coe said Monday.
On Sunday, AT&T concluded that the attack was over and restored access.
A posting on 4chan's blog on Monday, signed by founder Christopher Poole, said 4chan has been a target of a denial of service attack for weeks. To defend itself, it took measures that resulted in a backwash of traffic hitting other Internet users, including some AT&T customers. The posting said AT&T acted unnecessarily broadly in blocking access to the site for all customers.
"In the end, this wasn't a sinister act of censorship, but rather a bit of a mistake and a poorly executed, disproportionate response on AT&T's part," Poole said.
