Fuck everyone who DDoS'es pools. Really, your chances of finding blocks don't even go up unless the difficulty level drops down. It has zero effect.
Not to mention the sites will just keep coming up.
It doesn't do jack. Even the effect on BTC price is negligible at best. All you're doing is griefing miners.
I'd understand if there was some financial motive. But there isn't any.
These attacks are simply vandalism which makes it bizarre.
Or an attempt to make people switch pools
Are you saying that that is the actual difficulty RIGHT NOW?!
I thought it was just a displaying problem from bitcoin charts o.o
