I understand that we would like to know who caused this trouble and make him pay for it(donating for #! wink ), but really, it's both unnecessary and potentially dangerous to post such things.
I mean, we can live without this knowledge; but if we knew who did it, some flame could start. If there is no one to blame, there is no one to flame. smile

And I'm sure server admins too would like to know who gave them additional work.

Be excellent to each other!

I try not to simply "plus-one" a post without adding a comment, even if the comment is redundant.

Even if there may be some perceived danger, not only do the people have the right to know, but then we (meaning Philip & whoever owns the attacked server) could press charges & bring these a-holes to justice

First of all, there's no danger. Secondly, any action on the distro's part will be done privately and not in the forums.

I think this thread has run its course.
