BTC-e support has to be joking right? Would Mtgox really order a ddos against them?

Unless someone has control over the BTC-e server...

Tinfoilhat area imo.

But either way, it's disappointing that this community still hasn't outgrown these kind of things, if it is an actual attack or a false accusation either way.

That's one hell of an accusation to make without evidence, and making it without proving it can only damage BTC-e's reputation.

Explain yourself BTC-e support.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Seriously, that could be grounds for a lawsuit under slander/libel.

Tell them that you can configure the max connections per ip variable on nginx and its one line of config.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:

Hard to believe that industry leader will order ddos attack agains competitor with turnouts 20 time smaller. BTC-e has reason to order ddos-atack against MtGox, hoping that some customers will use then as alternative, but not vice versa. So I suppose support was really on drugs) or mistyped somehow))

MtGox have like the biggest customer base and I see no reason for them to do that.
Wouldn't btc-e have to prove it with images showing ip address of an attacker?

it would be funny if someone actually got drunk "sorry for the false accusation, one of the employees had a little bit to much".

Folks, a semi-competent script kiddie can drop a billion IP packets on the internet directed to btc-e (for example) with any "from" address you want (like mt-gox).  All the responses will go to the "from" address... so its pretty useless for everything except DDOS attacks.  Smart routers might drop the packets, but I guess not in this case.

This is the most likely explanation...
