First of all , in case you are paranoid (like me) and think that your computer might be a zombie involved in DDOS attacks: here is a link to a post with the map of all zombified computers and instructions on how to find your IP address, Click here to find the map and check. I checked my IP address. :D Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] blueocean80 for linking me to this!!!!

Another interesting post is here : synecdochic : LiveJournal's DDoS and Russian Politics. Some of the things mentioned are : "But somehow suggesting that "the Russians" are the cause of everything ill that happens on LJ is ignoring not only the rich culture of Russian-language LJ, not only the fact that LJ is a political force to be reckoned with, not only the fact that people are murdered because of what they post there, but also the fact that Russian-language LJ is probably the only reason LJ still exists as anything other than a fond memory. So please don't do it."

I must say that for a long time I used to get a knee-jerk reaction when synecdochic was mentioned, ever since her/his "Moscow does something stupid again" comment about some LJ fail. I don't even remember the particulars of the fail, but I used to remember the comment for a long time, even after she/he apologized. Moscow is a very large city where my family lives, so I don't take kindly to it being blamed for LJ's fails, and I think that the cold war warfare (including terminology) needs to be put to rest already (and I am not even talking about Russophobia). But "Russian Politics" post is really quite good, so I finally move on and admit that it is daft to remember a single comment for such a long time.
