is there some technical reason why there must not be too many blocks / they must have a minimum size?

Newly found blocks need sufficient time to propagate through the network, otherwise miners will end up creating invalid blocks.  10 minutes was determined to be about the right amount of time to minimize invalid blocks.

Again, block generation is a stochastic process, it's all about the probabilities and even a successful attack of the block chain wouldn't mean the end of Bitcoin, this is explained in the original Bitcoin paper (!).

If you found my comment useful please express your gratitude by doing an action of similar magnitude towards a better society. Thanks you!.

Yeah, because that's not illegal in almost all decently internet connected countries of the world.

Where's a mod when you need one? If we're not supposed to discuss illegal activities then this one needs at least a warning if not an outright ban.

looks like it's time for a ddos...

DDOS only makes things worse. People just go to another pool and that pool gets an even higher percentage of users. The reason why Deepbit is so high right now is because BTC Guild got DDOS attacked and is down.

Impress your friends! Buy a bitcoin keychain!
