Is OzBargain Just a DDoS Attack Platform?

There have been multiple businesses and tech platforms targeted by recent DDoS attacks recently. This got me thinking. OzB has indirectly caused sites to crash or become unresponsive due to our insane volume and desire for a good deal. Are we all apart of regular, unintentional, DDoS attacks on small scale? This is just for a laugh so please do not take it seriously or take offence.

    • Harvey doesn't think. Harvey knows.

      But seriously, what difference would it make if we were or weren't. The idea of his business is to sell. Professional or not, we buy.

        We only buy when it's on sale.

        Non-professionals pay full price. Gerry loves the amateurs.
