LJ DDoS attacks and politics (contains links)

I read the most recent announcement at [site community profile] dw_news this morning, and was surprised to learn about the possibility that the attacks LJ has been suffering are politically motivated. I hadn't heard of this before.

I went to Twitter, typed "livejournal" on the search box, and in a few minutes I found links to several articles on the subject. I'm going to list four of them below, mostly for my own reference (of course, there's nothing stopping you from clicking on the links if you're curious):

I don't know whether these theories are true or not, but for me they do make sense. What doesn't make sense to me is the xenophobia expressed by some self-entitled idiots who say that Russian LJ users should be separated from the others. ¬¬ Yes, Russian LJ-ers are the root of all evil! Let's not mix up with them! Yay segregation! *bitter sarcasm*
