There is every possibility that, at least as far as ATS goes, a former disgruntled member managed to throw together a small scale DDoS group.
Then again, Cybercommand is hiring, the NSA has their new Utah facility, and it seems most of the rules that used to govern America have been quietly replaced with a more "East Berlin before the fall of the wall" methodology. The idea of attacking fringe websites and then blaming those attacks on other fringe web communities seems to fit quite nicely into the false flag concept.
A year ago I wouldn't have even considered option two. Now? Now I tend to lean in its favor.

One thing to consider is how the sites find funding. Donation and paid membership sites often seem to have issues over and above the norm. But, fear not! Your monetary support will help pay for new "stuff" to help keep the site safe, secure and open to all

I read a fairly descriptive account on another site today that gave the name of the culprit that was behind the "Attack". The attack was to multiple sites and they have been apprehended by the authorities as reported on that site.

one of the major sites has been under attack for at least a week now and is currently down.
Last week they listed the source of the attacked and had the site on lock down, what ever that mean. Lots of bans in place as they tried to stop the attacks.
the site I am referring to is one of Gods chosen ones. lol
