Well i agree about the DDOS attacks kinda of useless like it was said above unless it's on online commerce situation no one is being hurt now you stop
master card for awhile and they start loosing money but come on the CIA site being down really doesn't hurt anyone I believe it's more of a "HAHA we
can take you down even for a second" type of attitude but that would more or less be kind of a show of cyber protest than an attack. and no not all
hackers are there to steal if you think that all do that then your just being a fearmonger yourself or are truly ignorant to what anyone's given
motives may be. But that's neither here nor there. My attitude would be if your going to go all in like that make it matter or something the people
would remember (and no i don't mean violence) but you see where i'm going what would be the public opinion when instead of risking jail time for sites
to be down for hours (= not really worth it) or risking jail time for take a network down permenantly (=a real threat)
to each their own....
but keep in mind just as some join a cause for bragging rights, there are hundreds who you wouldn't even know knew a thing about computers or networks
because they have learned A. it's anoying being that guy you get bothered every minute by people who don't want learn the tech they abuse. and B. How
can the movement move forward if we all get caught it's better to not brag how can you stop someone you don't even see coming......
