First of all, it's more likely that DoS
ing is being used here, rather than DDoS
ing... I doubt they'd have the resources required for the latter.
1. someone you DIDN'T KNOW asked you to join an irc, that is a little bit dodgy by itself
2. You're a pjer, thus should expect to be killed and targeted by any real pker with half a braincell. If you want to fight for real, which you probably can't, i'm happy yo volunteer. If you're going to pj, do it properly like bruno.
3. You die a lot, can't say this surprises anyone here. Lrn2pk/pj.
4. Letting them see your full ip address? wow, honestly. There's a reason that certain people on this forum have PRIVELEGES to be able to see people's ip addresses. Showing your full I.P to someone you don't even know? incredible
You, me and everyone else on this forum show our IP addresses to hundreds or thousands of people we do not know. It's not private information and never will be.
I don't need any special privileges on this website to get your IP, and there are many other ways than IRC to obtain it. Every network connection you make to another computer, sends out your IP address. Every website you view, every picture, video, every game you play... doesn't matter. IP addresses were never designed to be private. That is how the Internet works and there's nothing you can do about it. You called it incredible that he "showed" his IP address to those people. I guess we're all incredible, then. Hooray for equality!
Giving out your IP address to random people is like giving out your social security number. But I've never been in an IRC channel for more than five minutes, so it's not like I know much about those. Sorry you got DDOSed.
At your first sentence, I am trying hard to resist repeating the "lololololol" 100 more times, or smashing something. For my good health, sir, please leave the Internets.I know you're a girl. Sir sounds funnier.
