From fabulous [livejournal.com profile] endlessdeep, this is an interesting article: Why Have Hackers Hit Russia's Most Popular Blogging Service?

I am a practical person. Unless I am given some very tangible proof, I am not sure what to think. I think it is as likely that DOS attacks are caused either by LJ's competitors or some group of hackers somewhere who don't have anything better to do.

But! If the attacks are indeed political in nature and this is an attempt to shut down one of the free-speech platforms for Russian people, I am sort of PROUD TO BELONG TO LJ. I am going to stick around through thick and thin. I have seen many debates here on LJ, people fighting for their freedom to write porn one of the biggest of them. I am finally very happy to belong to a cause worthy of fighting for, and I don't really share "I just wish Russian political bloggers moved their blogs to somewhere else" sentiment.

PS: The funny part is that "Even the blog of President Dmitri Medvedev, a self-styled techie, came under attacks so powerful that it was inaccessible for several hours on Wednesday. On Thursday, Medvedev ordered police to launch an investigation." HA!

PS2: LJ? Do you need any donations for purchasing any new equipment to fight the DOS attacks?
