Excuse my ignorance, but what does 'DDOS'ing' stand for? In other words, what is it? #-o




Distributed Denial of Service Attack

One common method of attack involves saturating the target (victim) machine with external communications requests, such that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered effectively unavailable. In general terms, DoS attacks are implemented by either forcing the targeted computer(s) to reset, or consuming its resources so that it can no longer provide its intended service or obstructing the communication media between the intended users and the victim so that they can no longer communicate adequately.

Though I very highly doubt that someone who had access to a botnet would use it for something as pedestrian as cheating people out of their pixels on RS.

Even then, you could just use a locator to get there safely, but you'd still have to do deal with revenants. I assume you're a level 3 skiller, which means that the revenant could one-hit you (which would really suck if you had quite a few rune ores in your inventory).

why do the tip.it admins think it's necessary to protect the identity of scammers?




Probably for the same reasons that people think that lethal injection is an inhumane punishment for murderers and rapists. :?




Because even (posthumously) innocent people in the past have been tied to that chair or recieved the injection. Tip.it can't know which cases are genuine and which are just designed to ruin a clan/person's reputation.



Nothing can stop you from discreetly warning people though, such as PM'ing a friend to be cautious if pk'ing with that clan. It's not that the staff are control nazis, the policy protects innocent people as well from baseless accusations made in a fit of rage.
