QOTD - DDoS is the new poetry

It's time for the cybersecurity community to accept the uncomfortable truth that DDOS is what people do when they hate each other. In the past, they used to trade hate mail; today, they trade DDOS attacks.
Thanks to the Internet, today there are plenty of other ways for concerned and patriotic citizens to show their excitement about a war their country is fighting. DDOS is the new poetry.
Trying to analyze the cyber-dimension of a real war is impossible without understanding the causes, the conduct, and the aftermath of the war. -- Evgeny Morozov, a fellow at the Open Society Institute
