  1. I wonder if all these Ebay outages, have anything to do with the (somewhat) tougher rules on Scammers? (If you can't trick'em, hack'em)

    Didn't something like this happend to Amazon, and a few other major sites last year? Causing them to shut down for a while, and they lost quite a bit of money if I'm not mistaken. I don't understand why people would do this. It just doesn't make sense to me. But then again, there is a lot of things that go on that don't make sense to me, so....

    yeah, i remember that. I'm pretty sure that they were 'severely' hacked (as if there are different levels of severity) and basically amazon got caught with their pants down. I guess their network administrator or whoever made the firewalls and maintained the servers got a lil crap for that stunt. lol
