Politics.ie DDOS atacks by Occupy Politics.ie
It appears that someone is not happy with the Irish political bulliten board politics.ie. Since 18 November they have been victims of a DDOS Attack that has repeatedly crashed the site.
For many internet users and especially users of Irish political boards the idea that politics.ie "are victims" will raise a wry smile. In the past the site has used a corrupt political cadre as suposedly impartial moderators and its part owner (he sold a chunk a few years back) David Cochrane, was an employee of Declan Ganley and a founder of the far right Libertas party (now defunct).
According to Wikipedia
Though Politics.ie have changed their servers the DDOS may continue as no motive has been established for the attacks. It may well be an ordinary poster disgusted with their partisan modding and one-sided political agenda as informed by their cadre of ultra right wing moderators and their favoring of posters formarily aligned to the Libertas Party.
Or perhaps someone has decided to #Occupy politics.ie as their leading cadre support the 1%.
