A lot of pools have been DDOSed lately, including ones like Bitparking which aren't even that big.

Any speculation as to whats funding these attacks?

I have an article on this I will post in a few hours when Im home and can grab the link from tablets bookmarks.

Its somewhat how the stock market works, specific beings with higher powers can manipulate and contribute to such DOS attacks

Some people are so poor ALL they have is money
