 I agree with wycks. Famous news blog in my country today talking about
 I think must go to minor again. There are so many ways to do DDOS, is true
 (not need wp for this). But this is famous for wp and has script. Matt
 said this summer "we chose two, stability and security for wp" in video
 and i really liked it, many people don't understand what is this "simply
 read in a blog and then panic".
