More like our massive goat BALLS

edit: ok just so you guys are aware, goats are supremely disgusting creatures. They scream, piss, bite, and kick out of pure hate for anyone and everyone who catches their weird ass alien eyes. Goats are gross. I hope you guys realize that.

I mean, I think Voat is a very viable alternative and competitor to reddit (assuming that's who you're talking about), but I just really don't think it's the actual site or anyone working for them. More likely some asshole with way too much time on their hands who doesn't think or care about anyone else.

Don't let the haters get you down. You've been keeping the site up almost 100% for me at least through the attack and I am really grateful for that! Keep up the good work @Atko and @puttitout

We all really appreciate it! I'll donate when there are more options and ways to donate :)

[–] James557 2 points 35 points (+37|-2) ago 

Anythings possible, but I'd be surprised if they'd even bother. We're a drop in the bucket compared to the users they still have and frankly, they're probably glad most of us are gone. Considering they're trying to sanitize their image, I'm sure the last thing they want is even more people coming back to bitch about free speech and selective rule enforcement

Yup. They are not losing the users that matters to them, not yet. Bombing voat right now would feel pretty overkill. But you never know.

[–] GrimShins 0 points 26 points (+26|-0) ago 

Maybe not financially invested, but rather emotionally. I have a feeling this attack is coming from the same folks who tried to push the narrative that we're all misogynist pedophiles.

I still don't know much about that.

All I saw was a reddit post on SRS that got deleted, but I figured it was a troll. Not someone who was actually going to follow through.

[–] AberdolfLincler 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

Definitely possible. They could be looking at how much their numbers are dropping and how much Voat's are rising, decided to try and stop the bleeding a bit. I'm not naive enough to think Reddit is losing a lot of unique visitors or anything, but maybe lots of people are going there less frequently, posting less, ditching default subs, indicators like that.

Can't start a fire without a spark. We may not get 1/10,000 their traffic today but our growth is faster than theirs and half of our front page is /v/meanwhileonreddit. Thoae threads have to be ruffling some admin, mod, and SJW feathers.

[–] FenderBellyBodine 0 points 67 points (+67|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Layer 7 refers to the OSI Model For Communications Specifically, application layer. This means that someone is not just firing the Loic/Ping Of Death at the IP address of a specific server, but is making high numbers of specific legal, HTTP requests (likely) posing as a valid client.

[–] Girthcontrol 0 points 27 points (+27|-0) ago 

Layer 7 on the OSI model, which is communication protocols handled at the Application layer eg. FTP, HTTP (web browsers) and SMTP (email). So it probably means that the attacking botnet is using something like actual web browsers in the attack.
