I checked my spam filter just now because I wondered if I was getting mostly trackbacks or stupid links on my blog posts. I do weird stuff like that… it comes from being an analyst and hating having questions unanswered.
I had a spam from someone offering a DDoS for pay service. The deal was you paid this guy to assassinate someone else’s site for x amount of hours for x amount of $.
My thoughts on it range from “pretty smooth move, shithead” to “it’s probably a scam to get people who use AOL to hand over their paypal info” to “how stupid do you have to be to PAY someone to do something you could do yourself with open-source software after 30 seconds on Google?”
Really, though, most people probably just see it and go “what’s a DDoS?”
