Sir, you are mistaken in your belief that "where it hurts" and what really matters is the top of the "pyramid". Some make decisions and are paid offensively high salaries, but the power of society is in the people who make the economy run. More and more our society is showing itself capable of (and even demanding) acephaly. If you cut off the head, the body will move itself. The only way to hit where it hurts is to hit the body, the arteries, etc.

I don't think it's a statement as much as a means of survival. Most people who have what they need tend to not steal. A real statement against capitalism would probably include targeting global shipping lanes or obstructing air travel, but I don't condone any of them (nor do I know how someone would do it).

You are a simple failed hooligan, without the slightest idea how the system works and you want to fight capitalism, robbing in stores. You don't even know how to hit where it really hurts. It just makes me pity.

I would say it's not that different, it just depends on the store and house. Stealing from companies that exploit workers and make profits is okay, while stealing from an owner-operated 1 person business would be pretty wack unless theyre marking up insulin or something else similarly disgusting. Stealing from someone who is not rich (I understand thats a vague qualifier) is definitely wack, while stealing from rich people is a-okay in my opinion.

If a poor person by necessity steals food in a supermarket it is certainly a sign that something is wrong in a society. But this does not turnit into a political activism, with this it does not harm the food lobbie, only the owner of a franchise that has rented it from a multinational. Political activism has to be aimed at the apex of the pyramid, not at errands who just want to make a living. That someone steals preserves in a supermarket or that someone steals a sack of rice in China, is irrelevant for those who caused this underlying problem, while taking their Daikiri on their yachts.

Stealing in a store and stealing in a house is nothing alike. If you go to large super markets and steal food, I don't think this is morally bad. I think buying that food and supporting a shitty corporation is less ethical than stealing stuff in it.

Naturally what is considered criminal may be relative, but I don't see what political statement there may have been stealing from a store. It is simply what it is, a theft from people who have no relation to politics, rather than trying to make a living. Let's see if one day they enter your apartment where you live and empty it completely, to see if then you also talk about a political statement.

Robbery in small stores is activism? I don't think so, enough is enough that corrupt politicians are robbed of us. Apart from that, it is not exactly a more suitable method to achieve a political end, I would almost say that it is the most stupid way. The only purpose that is achieved with criminal activities in a social network is that the authorities close this website and hold the owner of this website responsible judicially. I have known the network for 20 years and have seen more than once closed to websites and forums for criminal and illegal content, the most famous Megaupload case a few years ago. Activism is something else.

Sorry that's happening to you. Dealing with DDOS is never fun. Personally, i would recommend to drop CloudFlare and other centralized scammers and go with a pro host. If you don't mind sharing the specifics of the server hardware, i believe some place like OVH would be well-suited to host raddle.me for ~50€/mo: they have good infra and don't take action against a client unless there's a court order to do so... I believe they previously hosted wikileaks.org for a while (despite DGSI pressuring them not to) and can sustain heavy DDOS without going into any form of "cloud" offering (network-level mitigations).

That is, of course, assuming that the DDOS taking place is network based and not a simple DOS of an expensive server feature. If you have more details, or if you need help configuring proper caching or anything, let me know.

Those tools won't help if the network interface is saturated, and the hosting provider classifies Raddle as a liability.

Ultimately, large providers like Cloudflare and Amazon can shoulder the burden of DDoS attacks against their customers, while smaller providers either 1) can't, or 2) can, but only by reselling the larger providers' services. It sucks to be reliant on them, but at least it's only for reverse proxying towards a host of our choice.

It is also possible that Raddle is on various sites flagged as a network with criminal content, with discussions and threads about robberies. I think also a site that allows free speech, this should not even allow to include this. Political activism is one thing and criminal activities are quite another. This can affect users outside of this and may even have legal consequences for Raddle itself and the owner and responsible for this site, which I would be very sorry for, because I like Raddle and many of its valuable contents.

DDoS attacks are a plague, especially because any subnormal and/orTroll can perform them without having any knowledge in programming, with sites on the network that offer to do it or apps for this purpose. While these exist, attacks of this kind will always follow. The only thing you can do is to report these websites as soon as you find them. I have seen too many times forums and websites crushed by these attacks, launched by some idiot. I hope that this time you have more luck and these attacks end and that your partner recovers soon.

Seriously?

raddle being down affects more than a single person. So much for being the lone voice against "the echo chamber" lol. You're nothing more than a troll. and a pathetic one, at that. Super classy, Joek, choosing to insult a person right after they divulge personal struggles. How about you choose to get a hobby that isn't embarrassing yourself on the internet.
