It is/was, from what I understand, a "back at ya" since the RIAA hired a
company in India to DDoS torrent related sites. The Indian company
is/was also under DDoS.

I do agree that it's somewhat pointless. They better could block access
to movie theaters all over the world by chaining themselves to the
entry. But, hey, then they have to get out of the couch and get out of
the house. And their moms might start to ask questions...
