"Turkish Islamist Hacker Wannabes" Keep Knocking Mu.Nu Down

We were out last night because some cyberjihadis, whose main target was MyPetJawa, didn't have the l33t skillz to break into the system and so settled on a distributed denial of service attack on all of mu.nu's servers.

Described here.

I'm just saying: Look, if MyPetJawa is upsetting these people, shouldn't he be a little more understanding? Maybe if he took more efforts to "understand Islam,"* they wouldn't be so angry with him, and then the rest of us wouldn't be inconvenienced.

Please: Give in, Rusty. We can't have your unilateral attacks on people with legitimate grievances causing the rest of us problems. You must employ a "mu.nu test" for deciding if the rest of us support your belligerent provocations against Islamists. A little less of the Krazy Kowboy Krusader mindset might work wonders in "winning hearts and minds."

* Is it just me, or is your first reaction after turning on the news and hearing someone say "We must try harder to understand Islam" to wonder, "Oh God, what did they blow up now?"

It seems this "suggestion" that we must better "understand Islam" always comes after some new Islamist outrage.

I kind of wonder: After Muslims blow something up, and other Muslims cheer them on for doing so, shouldn't we really be asking if Muslims ought to try to "better understand" Western civilization? Perhaps paying particular attention to the Judeo-Christian moral imperative against murder?

Doesn't that make more sense? They are, after all, the ones killing people. Maybe they could better profit from an additional dollop of "understanding" or two than their victims?

Why is it the people who get blown up continuously have to learn about the folks planting the bombs?
