I still don't buy it. Might be a real group, but anyone could have read those articles and registered a gmail address in the group's name.

From the first article you linked:

After the demise of these two main groups, there was a wave of copycats [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] that used their respective reputation to extort payments from companies, in many cases without even possessing any DDoS capabilities.

Put me firmly in the LOL camp.

Personally, I would rather see Voat go down for hours or even days than have the knowledge anyone here caved to these pricks. I won't even complain about the downtime if it happens. It's the principle of the thing. But that's just me. I know people are bored and want to shitpost, and we can't exactly go back to Reddit.
